LFW Feb 14: Sorapol


The show started off with a short film depicting a nude woman having garments sewn into her flesh, which really set the scene for this breath-taking catwalk, while the FROW could be seen vaping the latest e-cigarette’s by NJOY.

Sorapol’s look for this season has combined surrealism and necromancy to create a collection entitled Malefic. These two themes inspired the whole collection. The first and last piece to emerge was a sheer patterned piece which, just like the short film, had been surgically sewn into the models flesh – a truly breathtaking piece, also gruesome but beautiful.


Throughout the rest of collection Sorapol used crocodile, stingray and lizard skins combined with embellishments of crystals from Preciosa Components. The coats, accessories and separates were all striking, but nothing compared to the finale of crystallised ball gowns. They were met with great applause from the audience as soon as they emerged, and rightly so, they were stunning.

As well as having such an unforgettable collection, Sorapol commissioned and collaborated with three up and coming London artists. They used hand drawn illustrations from Gerald Baker, headpieces designed by Mark Nesmith and worked with accessories designer Lila. All were able to showcase their work as well as take inspiration from this remarkable collection.
