For the most part, I found the collections to be fairly subdued. Even Vivienne Westwood Red Label didn’t get me excited and I can usually count on that line to bring the crazy.
There were a few looks, though, that I did take some glee in. A few things that looked like they travelled here from some Earth future. But, there’s still a subtlety and cleanliness about them as if the future they came from maybe doesn’t such so much.
This look from Antonio Berardi it total Future Marketing Exec:
I do wonder if Philip Treacy is screwing with the Royal Family with some of his Spring 2013 hats and fascinators. Princess Beatrice and Kate Middleton have frequently been photographed wearing his pieces and I would LOVE for them to bust out in one of these Philip Treacy originals:
I love this dress and capelet from Burberry Prorsum so much:
In anything other than metallic bandages and orange plastic, I would be bored. As is, she comes from a shiny, happy future or one where humans are required to fashion clothing from old party supplies.
Something about this Julien MacDonald gown makes me think “XENOMORPH” or “TENTACLE”.
Dion Lee pulled from a future where we breathe through gills on our hips.
Pacific Garbage Patch.
Haizhen Wang won LFW’s Fashion Fringe competition and I’m really looking forward to what he does in the future. This look is emblematic of his winning collection: architectural and futuristic. I could do without the hat, but the folds and textures on the dress are gorgeous.
Modern tree nymph.
It’s the copper piping that makes this for me. Also the sheen and movement on the sheer overlay, which looks like the model is wearing a transparent organism as a poncho.
