With James Brown's "It's a man's man's man's world" blaring, it's pretty evident that By Thomas' collection is inspired by menswear. A well-balanced collection of nicely structured raglan jackets, knits and turtle necks, and simple dresses. The wine colored pieces are also rightfully on trend.
Overall, designer Natasha Thomas presented a very modern, promising collection which plays with proportions. Although there are no prints or patterns, the contrasting fabrics selection make it interesting and fun, especially the light gold, crisp metallic fabrics used for various items. Inspired by menswear, with a hint of femininity.
The short abstract film, produced by Triptyque, prior to the show set the mood - cold, wet, and serious. This sums up the collection to a T. No prints, no contrast colors. Both male and female models, tripping over massive platform heels and sporting wet hair and makeup, radiated a cold vibe. I liked the androgynous theme and fashion forward concept. A show and collection well presented, which seemed to have a positive reception. Definitely intriguing and for a specific niche market, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around some of the pieces. Pedram says, "this collection is totally gender confused, regardless of your sex, if you think you can pull it off then wear it."
What I admire most of Mélissa Nepton's "Equestris" collection is the innovative round tailored collar capes. I'm not entirely sure how to describe it, just look at the pictures! Nepton used a mix of heavy textured and lightweight sheer flowy fabrics, which gave movement. Black and white as well as colored printed stripes added more visual appeal to the collection, while the houndstooth all over prints were classy and clean with a modern twist. She has also launched her new line of accessories, which includes oversized bags and scarves. Absolutely flawless collection.
Lace and florals and everything nice, as expected from Miss Toto. The collection carries on the peplum trend through the winter season. The lace socks with high heels complimented the colorful florals on black ground. The movement in the hourglass dresses and skirts suggested Nadya's feminine style. Fabrics and textures harmoniously blend together, giving just the right amount of femininity, youth, and boldness.
