Another great day of shows….
Derek Jarmon’s post apocalyptic, new wave cult film ‘Jubilee’ provided the origins of Preen’s AW13 collection. Minimalist colours, black, red, and white accentuate the stark lines of the silhouettes. Peplum, zip detailing, crystal, silk Devore and pixilated leopard prints are key detailing throughout the collection….. Beautiful!
Mark Fast went all out with his signature sexy knit panelling and created elegant long gowns in punchy colours like Fuschia pink and rouge….. you can never have too much fringing!
Jonathan Saunders show had patent leather corset panelling on silky dresses and laser cutout floral silk-satin stitched on top of tulle covered mohair coats fastened with patent skinny belts.
Tailoring is bold & bright this AW13….. colour blocking at its best!
The new collection turns to landscape, inspired by the shadowy vistas of the turn of the century and photography of Edward Steichen. Katrantzou has focussed more on sculptural shape cutting than the prints this season.
Marios Schwab is renowned for dressing women with a strong powerful aesthetic and this season was no different.
This season Nicoll played with textures layering chevron knit, croc print leather and colour block flannel wool…. one of his best collections to date!

Interesting as Claude was heavily influenced by Japan in his day, hence the Japanese bridge and pond built in his infamous garden. Preen‘s pieces give a postmodern digital spin to the french painter’s lilies, of which he spent the last decade of his life painting. A fresh interpretation of the impressionist brush strokes by Thornton Bregazzi.
