Good Afternoon Lovelies,
These two designers did not do a collaboration but they did show back to back yesterday morning. What a way to wake up! Who needs crappy filtered coffee from the press lounge when you can watch this!
David Koma being relatively new to the scene only graduating from Saint Martins last years put on a beautiful show with a alluring mix of inspirations. Taking from the Russian ballet 'Swan Lake' as shown in the tutu stiff layers over the pencil shape dresses. His use of python skin is deconstructed and positioned in vertical and linear positions which is inspired by the Cubist artist Fernand Legar.
Holly Fulton took us on a wild trip to Monaco, Egypt, Brazil and Hollywood, Joan Collins style!! Large graphic prints reminiscent of Aztec to 1920 art deco design. I absolutely loved the use of accessories in the collection. Holly's clutch bags with 'HOLLY SAYS RELAX' (also the tag line on the invite) was so cheeky. I just wish I could get one made with my own name on it!
