Nian – London Fashion Week Day 2
Organic looking structure featured in wool coat sleeves and a ribbed leather jacket. Utility themes that developed throughout the last
season were prevalent here, a worker style jumpsuit with chunky, buckled straps highlighting this theme. The colour palette developed very naturally through black, white and grey to jade and red with scarlet pocket handkerchiefs flashing and leading the way. The collection used a wide range of fabrics and mixed them well – one herringbone jacket featured leather/PU sleeves while the shorts appeared to use an entirely different felt/wool mix.
The collection was commercial and sophisticated, with clean lines and androgynous cuts.
(Part way through this collection the wall in the show space fell down on the audience so a few of the final pieces were missed by many of
the press battling their way out from under a board!)
