Each guest was handed a glow stick on arrival and led to stand in the centre of the room as the catwalk circled around the crowd, to the backdrop of a fast paced, flashing film. The collection, inspired by films such as Mad Max and Heathers took clear influence from the styles and pop culture of the late ’80s to early ’90s. Menswear was focused on oversized geometric print jumpers in bright block of colours and black and white looks, such as leather jackets and print t-shirts. There was a banana print, in particular, which was reminiscent of work of iconic pop artist Andy Warhol.
Womenswear, took a more structured, dressed up direction including; floor length dresses with fur and feather detailing, printed hot pants and fur covered boots. The use of raven feathers on the arms and a large-collar puffa jackets, as shown above, were stand out looks.
The feeling was cyber kid meets futuristic warrior and highlighted a clear trend developing for A/W11-12 with designers across the board seeking inspiration from early ’90s fashion and popular culture.
