THE GUILTY HYENA

London Fashion Week AW 15

RunwayGuilty Hyena3 Comments

The plethora of shows taking place at London Fashion Week can be perpendicular to the senses, here's a few of the collections I opted to share. I've yet to have a peek at the druthers of Milan, Paris Fashion week, until I'm more wired. 

DIANI DIAZ - LCF MA 2015

+ ILLUSTRATION 

+ Greys & Black

+ My Favourite piece Trench Coat

Desfase is the A/W 2015 ready to wear collection that combines street-luxurious casualwear with soft tailoring, aiming to appeal to sophisticated and effortlessly chic women.

The concept behind the collection was inspired by the performance Fase: four movements on the music of Steve Reich, by choreographer and dancer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker.

The performance is well known for its cool, minimal abstraction and precision.
The aesthetics of the collection combine attention to detail and the use of innovative surfaces, methods and premium modern materials such as foam and silicone, adding a sense of newness to the range.

+ Translucent frosted elements

It's safe to say, this collection is hitting my sweet silicone spot! The neoteric impulsion by Colombian Diani Diaz, of combining and experimenting with modern materials such as foam and rubber in an stimulating aesthetic mien is creative and meritorious. Diani Diaz collaborated with designer Chiara Pavan for the eyewear, which aptly complements the collection.     

+ Molded Foam Structured Neck 

LE KILT AW15 - She Said Boom

+ Chiara Pavan Eyewear

The collection inspired by the post-punk fanzine created by 80’s band Fifth Column, as well as a extension of the Scottish designer/creative director, Samantha McCoach’s own subcultural uniform.

MARKUS LUPFER - CARROT & STICK

TATTY DEVINE EARRINGS COLLABORATION

The Claire Barrow brand is renowned for its unique illustrated aesthetic.
Inspired by French-American artist and sculptor Louise Bourgeois. Floral & Hair Appliques, Dusty Cream Organza Dresses, Tapestry Capes Damask Aristocrat.

When I usually see the name 'Simone Rocha' It conjure up images of perspex heels, when I first set my eyes on them. I immediately went out and bought a pair that I could afford,  My favorite from the collection was the see through sheer organza dresses with cloudy petal appliques, and some funky hair attachment pieces here or there. 

VIVIENNE WESTWOOD RED LABEL AW 15

The camouflage tiger print coat was where my focal point went to , I do have a weakness for a camo print.

Duffel Coats with ornate damask baroque with a modicum of 3D Triangle spikes.

Relished the garments which had characteristic 3D triangular spikes and skirt objects and I thought the Styrofoam-like runway made for a quirky fun presentation, which complimented the collection. A tasty amalgamation of old baroque with futuristic Geometric 3D. 

ERDEM AW 15 

Metallic Green, Purple and Pink
Brocade Party Frocks

ANYA HINDMARCH AW15 - M25

Anya drew inspiration from the lights, reflective surfaces and graphic signage that you find on the motorway. Using intricate techniques such as leather marquetry and thermal bonding, we’ve explored these graphics in a luxurious and subtly humorous way on totes and evening clutches

Would wear these outerwear in a heartbeat, even with the iconic responsible trash man.  The keep your distance coat could come in handy if you are having a cruddy abominable day. 

Dora Abodi AW15 - CULT OF THE TWIN UNISUS 

The futuristic digital prints are inspired by exploding crystals and metallic components of robots. The Twin Unisus symbol has evolved in a different Metamorphoses. The silhouettes are sophisticated, sometimes deconstructed and asymmetric but still timeless. The collection has an air of ethereal femininity, encapsulating the mysterious creatures of the Cult of the Twin

Unicorns everywhere

I like the frayed element on the hand gloves

Unisus - The collection is an insight in to the fragile borders and conflicts between; innocence and sin, religion and paganism, faith and denial, beliefs and fantasies of half human, half extra-terrestrial creatures. Inspiration was taken from science fiction, wild London rave parties of early 90’s (klubkid grunge platform and backpack reinterpretations, hairstyle etc.) and the dark, gothic atmosphere of Transylvania.

ASHLEY WILLIAMS AW15

Ashley Williams collection it's all about the girls. Packed full of hellion rebel slogans 'Last Chance to Escape Planet Earth" and "Plastic Surgery" and 'Improve your image be seen with me' patched onto the garments. Rebellious gang of girls kitted up in 90's kitsch grunge with bright yellows and bubblegum pinks, with on trend cutout knee-holes.
