Bicester Village, the discount shopping destination in Oxfordshire, turns 20 this week and to celebrate they have announced three additional young London designers to complete their 2015 British Designers' Collective.
Ryan Lo, Thomas Tait and Eudon Choi have been added to the 6th incarnation of the summer fashion collective. They join a big-name line-up curated by fashion consultant Yasmin Sewell, which includes Mary Katrantzou, Sophia Webster, Peter Pilotto, Roksanda, J. JS Lee, Nicholas Kirkwood, Holly Fulton, Preen, House of Holland and Jonathan Saunders. Sewell has selected her favourite items from the designers' back catalogues to sell at the summer pop-up, which will feature "oversized tree roots merged with molten gold leaf" from the imagination of interior designer Claire Ceprynski.
ICA Studio art collective fig-2 is also joining the party, with four artists from their 50 exhibitions in 50 weeks programme. Commissioned by Fatoş Üstek and curated by Jack Tan, fig2 at Bicester Village will present site-specific work by Shezad Dawood, Annika Strom, Vesna Petresin and Deborah Coughlin with Gaggle.
