The biggest fashion celebration is back in London. Here’s a little recap of what went down on both schedule and off schedule.
Designers include Eudon Choi, FYODOR GOLAN, Teatum Jones, Rocky Star, Billie Jacobina and the Ones To Watch candidates (Joanna Berling, Krasimira Stoyneva, Orange Culture and RU Chen).
Having already been the winner for the One to Watch Award and the British Council’s Graduate Fashion Week’s International Residency Award, Billie Jacobina channels her influences from her residence in Jakarta, Baduy, Sumba and Bali. It’s a girly anaesthetic, with some playful elements to it. Her degree in Textiles enabled her to take advantage of the brush stoke paintings that are printed on some of her looks. There’s also embellishments and tulle blocked into her feminine looks.
Teatum Jones added more spice by featuring some style for the fellas. Nevertheless, there was a huge parade of Black – and also grey. Since grey has become the alternative colour for many of us. However, the use of the Black is come full swing, as well as very long sleeves, drapes on the dresses and cropped trousers (for the boys). Added colours such as mustard, and burgundy continue this year. Although, we can’t help but admire those coats the men were wearing.
Eudoi Choi has been well known from his femininity silhouettes, but this time, he stripped back with his new Autumn/Winter collection, taking some masculinity against feminine silhouettes. You have one of the looks of a lilac purple jumper, with what looks like some ankle length trousers. Surprisingly, no heels are in sight this time, but rather the common on-the-go attitude of white pumps. It’s arguable to say that he’s taken the common basic essentials from A/W 17 and refresh them. We wouldn’t say the whole collection is androyous, because it isn’t to the extreme, but we would say that it’ll suit the woman, who like things straight cut, sporty, direct and who wouldn’t mind a splash of feminine.
