London Fashion Week: Day One
Femme fatales, fetish-wear and fabulous glamour kicked off proceedings at lfw
Jean-Pierre Braganza put on a sophisticated display, showcasing blood-red gowns, fur stoles and over-the-elbow evening gloves fit for a killer film noir femme fatale. Hair was knotted low at the nape of the neck for an artfully mussed up look.
Sass & Bide
Fabulous metallics played a large part in Australian brand Sass & Bide's catwalk show, injecting the collection with a distinctly glamorous feel. Lashings of leather, peekaboo sheer panelling and sequin embellishment contrasted perfectly with Japanese prints and sharply contoured outerwear. Hair was made to look effortless: parted off-centre, blasted with label.m Resurrection Dust and tucked into collars.
Jamie Wei Huang
Designer Jamie Wei Huang drew inspiration from the Lars Von Trier film, Nymphomaniac. As such, the collection carried a strong fetish element with garments embellished with straps, buckles and belts off-set by soft shearling trims. Tumbling, wet-look locks added to the mood.
