London Fashion Week – Lako Bukia
This too was a representation of the designers’ time in the fashion industry, in a world where it’s hard to survive and strength is something that has to be maintained, the collection was made of strength, fierceness and edge.
The catwalk started with a floor length long sleeved glittery foil-esque dress with a V back. Very striking and gorgeous, all the models had dark futuristic eyebrows which enhanced the ferociousness of the collection. Although an androgynous look to each outfit, it was all very wearable. With fabrics made from black suede’s and leather as well as a lurex, glittery foil fabric which was incredibly fluid. Triangle panels sewn onto sheer chiffons were frequently seen on skater skirts, tapered trousers, dresses and shirts. Charcoal black suede trousers mixed with glittering geode like fabrics.
The effect was simply stunning, with dresses cinched at the waist there was a hint of femininity within the edgy collection. Later on collarless and sleeveless coats arrived in thick wool which was so simple and sculpted. The materials evoked ideas of granite and meteor rocks, when they subtly glisten in the light. The finale piece was a midi dress with a mirror mosaic scattered from one shoulder down to the hip fading out, as the model finished the catwalk a burst of silver confetti surprised us all to the end of a beautiful show.
