‘Fast AT Jonathan Aston’ will be launched in London on March 15th. It will be available for in store delivery on August, 2012.
The pieces in the collection are the culmination of a year’s work by the brand and Mark Fast.
Canadian and former Central St. Martins student Mark Fast is a specialist knitwear designer. At 30 years old, Mark Fast has already collaborated with Stuart Vevers for Loewe, Bora Aksu, Christian Louboutin, Swarovski, Atelier Swarovski, Christian Louboutin, Topshop, Pinko, Danier, and Woolmark.
The new project aims to combine the designer’s ‘unique skill,’ understanding of knitting techniques and eye for detail with the Jonathan Aston ‘dynamism’ to create winning designs.
On the announcement, John Roskalns, managing director of the Melas Group – owner of the Jonathan Aston brand – said: “This has been a terrific collaboration; Mark has truly stretched the ingenuity of our factories in creating pieces with a really strong look that will be stunning for current and new ‘astonistas’ to wear. We are so looking forward to presenting this collection”.
