We're delighted to share Concrete Collar's first published editorial in the first ever print issue of Bricks Magazine (how apt!). Shot on location at London's Barbican Estate by Hannah McGee and styled by Becky, this shoot explores the iconic concrete complex while showcasing the talents of designer Julie Eilenberger.

A prominent example of British Brutalist architecture, the estate was built between 1965 and 1976 by architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon. Now Grade II listed and home to some 4,000 people this urban   megalith holds a special place in our hearts as an exemplary piece of uncompromising architecture.

We hope you like it!

Tomorrow we release an exciting editorial (styled by yours truly) feat. the SS14 collection of Julie Eilenberger. But before that we wanted to give you a little background on the lady herself.

We discovered Aarhus-born designer Julie Eilenberger on the now sadly dormant Bengt website and instantly fell for her clean lines and strong silhouettes. Her experience with Chrisropher Kane is evident in her structured outerwear and we just had to know more about this rising star's influences.

We found out how architecture inspires her work.

CC: How does architecture influence your designs?

JE: Architecture inspires me because when you live in so many different places you notice different things to those who live there year round. I have lived in Denmark, Florence, Berlin and now in London. I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of Victorian housing stock and Brutalist architecture in London. In Berlin there's all this cheaply built 1970's architecture alongside surviving pre-war buildings, the both have their charms. I notice more and more as I travel, the lines, clothes and geometric forms of the cities I visit.

This sent the cogs in our minds whirling and we can't wait to share the outcome with you tomorrow!
