For SS15 Casely-Hayford focuses on duality in various aspects of their collection. They’ve aimed to juxtapose painterly with graphic, formal with relaxed and business with punk on a canvas of “culturally significant garments that are defined by their normality”.
Shirts with cartoonish huge eyes and scary cats with slogans stating “acid club” created a street style attitude to the collection.
The show starts with Rhythms Of The City, a Brazilian percussion group, silently filing out into the show space at the Old Sorting Office barefoot with their instruments. They burst out loud and spirited samba beats for a minute, setting the lively atmosphere, before the first model makes an appearance.
The fashion of the 90′s doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon nor does the obsession with black. Buttoned up shirts were worn with matching knee length shorts and, if not in black or monochrome, were in bold red, primary green or deep purple.
A major factor contributing towards Christopher Raeburn’s collection this season is his consideration towards “reintegration, reappropriation” and ultimately; recycling. He has launched the REMADE range to continue on his commitment to sustainability, while also taking design inspiration from the items he’s reusing.
Never one to shy away from subtle, Ashish presented us with another loud glittering affair for Autumn/Winter. Primary inspiration coming from a prom queen having been out all night and finally staggering her way home – bedraggled hair and smudgy bright pink eyes in tow.
Sunday saw once again one of the most anticipated catwalks of any Fashion Week season – by Topshop Unique. Not only because the clothes we see will be instore in Topshop for all to buy – but as years gone by have dictated Topshop’s reign of the high street, a primary inspiration for women and high school girls up and down the country.
‘Debauched Debutantes’ meant bad girls had crashed the Upper East Side party, this Autumn/ Winter at House of Holland. Ruling the catwalk was a theme somewhere between pretentious opulence and flash trash -’Rich Bitch’ slogans were sprawled across chests and clutches, appropriately and unsubtly setting the tone of a coming of age society cocktail party, all paid for on daddy’s card, of course.
