MALAN BRETON AW19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

Malan Breton AW19 – London Fashion Week

          ‘Cine Malan’ – Cinematic drama , based on the story of actress, Norma Desmond.

            The House Of Malan Breton, was a journey through a nostalgic world of 1920s characters. The atmosphere was incredible… moving from room to room observing incredible looks in leather , tulle, sequins, and  sharp tailoring.  

       

He takes on his own twist to the traditional trench with a megawatt metallic finish in gunmetal, contrasted with the soft piping of faux fur. Taiwanese embroidery techniques are deeply sewn and rooted into the seams as well his soul. Gowns intensely hand-sequined in rich reds and bold burgundies. Leather adorned in Swarovski crystals and Japanese fresh water dying are a few of the masterful techniques used to create the luxuries of this collection.

       
Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter, Keira Chaplin was part of the cast for the presentation. Wearing an Incredible red tulle gown. 

Malan ;“What if we could know the stories of the mad man, the other side of life as told by victims, what if we could know the pain, the suffering, the loss and abandon that bring the antagonists to madness. What if in this exploration of psyche we learn that the evil, the unkind were once pure. What if we knew their joys, and could save them before their last moments.

BORA AKSU – AW19 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

 

”Once you’ve been in space, you appreciate how fragile the Earth is” – Valentina Tereshkova

A/W19 Boru Aksu draws inspiration from the first woman to go into space.

Valentina Tereshkova beacme the first woman to fly in space in 1963. On June 1963, she spent almost three days in space and orbited Earth 48 times in her capsule. While TV viewers saw her smiling face and her logbook floating in front of her, they didn’t realize that the flight had almost turned into tragedy, a fact that remained classified fo r40 years. Tereshova went on to graduate from the Zhuykosky Air Force Engineering Academy in 1969 and earned a degree in Technical Science. She then toured the world promoting science and feminism. Valentina serves as a role model for all women throughout the world who wish to achieve their dreams.

 

In a collection dedicated to her, Bora Aksu creates garments that reflect Valentina’s space trip drawing on contrasts of her early life growing up in a small village.

The iridescent orgnza and tulle fabrics appear ethereal in texture, aiming to create garments that react to microgravity in a new and completely different way. Weightlessness is key. The combination of soft feminine fabrics and structured shapes add a resounding sense of romance to the strong, bold silhouettes. The astronaut manifests itself in coats , boxed jackets and puffer jackets.

Layering is used aas a tool to create interesting textures without adding heaviness. To create this layering effect. Bora designed very specific embroideries on velvets, tulles and lace.

Hand embroidered and knitted hed pieces are created by Liria Pristine.

Pearl Jewellery and avant – garde sunglasses are created by Halo and Co, inspired by the Space Age.

‘I believe a woman should always remain a woman and nothing feminine should be alien to her. At the same time, I strongly feel that no work done by a woman, can enter into conflict with her ancient wonderful mission’, to love, to be loved.” – Valentina Tereshkova 1970

PAUL COSTELLOE A/W 2019 – LONDON FASHION WEEK

Day 4 #lfw19

Paul Costelloe was my first show on Monday morning @ Simpsons on the strand. The show location is always at venue that echoes the theme of the show, elegant and inspirational.

This season for Autumn / Winter 2019 -20 , Paul Costelloe shows his mastery of tailoring. With striking, military inspired coats in pure Italian wool, they lead a collection full of rich colour, reminiscent of the Tsars and a homecoming from War, an escape from austerity and what is to come…

The military looks opened the show with striking coats, jackets styled with latex trousers, shorts and statement jewellery by NJO designs.   

            

            

         

 

Opulent, mill-engineered velvet, corduroy with lavish handle, in autumnal shades of gold and claret, add to an array of flower strewn day to evening pieces, including pencil skirts with over-sized Aran Knitwear, day dresses in subtle woven patterns and aristocratric inspired long, billowing gowns fit for a princess.

               

This season, Paul Costelloe Bags introduce a collection of substantial leather pieces, with a decidedly military feel, including crossovers, satchels and belt bags with brass detail bring this outstanding collection together.
