Less than 2 weeks for London Fashion

Return to Simplicity

During the London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2016, Designer Edeline Lee presented her collection with the idea of a return to simplicity.

I think we are all feeling the need to simplify, pull back, minimize, declutter, underexpose, eat cleaner food, air out our inboxes, stop keeping with the Joneses, turn off earphones and of off the grid. I used purer shapes, cleaner lines and fabrics with integrity.  The landscape and climate we live in now ironically requires us to be constantly exposed and yet at the same time, hold ourselves once removed from all the chatter,” Edeline commented.

A functional, utilitarian series of Black, Calico and Ivory pieces are made of heavy Virgin Wool crepe. Unstructured coats with three-dimensional contrast pipping, wrapped around like a blanket.

The On| Off The Vinyl Factory where Switzerland-based artist Kyung Roh Bannwart has created an abstract landscape using a mixture of playful shapes made of shredded paper.

A sophisticated signature made of precise cuts and refined craftsmanship.

S/S 2014 Collection ‘Frida’

Designer Veronica Basharatyan created the collection inspired by Mexican surrealist painter Frida Kahlo work, pain and passion . The inspiration is reflected in the color palette and the silhouettes referencing to Frida’s uncompromising depiction of the female experience form.

In the runway we see layers of delectable silk chiffons in both vivid and pastel colours. Intriguing prints and embellishments that attract our attention and don’t let go. From the sophisticated retro hair to the subtle finishes on the nails and make up. The all too famous enhanced brow or almost uni-brow worn by Frida Kahlo.

Basharatyan SS14 LFW

Luxurious silks and soft palettes complementing the concept. Intricate patterns adorn the flowing silk chiffons as the wind flows through the seams of the gowns. Low back cuts, are present in the myriad of creative visual alchemy. A femenine approach with a strong protagonist as it’s muse. A woman who is not affraid of color, who can wear the most constricted suit but chooses to wear the joy of confidence and elegance without sacrificing style.
