DAY ONE: London Fashion Week A/W 14
Day one of our London Fashion Week trend report
JEAN PIERRE BRAGANZA
The work of Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi influenced Jean-Pierre Bragazanza’s darkly illuminated, painterly prints and boxy, deconstructed tailoring. Hair was centre parted and swept back into geometric plaits incorporating contrasting colour hair wefts.
Ong oaj pairam
This Thai-British designer has previously worked for Roland Mouret - and it shows. For A/W 14 he showed figure-loving 1950s silhouettes with floral prints for girls and colourful tailoring for boys. Hair was shaped high into large bouffants, buns and pompadours.
Ones to watch
Previous Ones To Watch winners include such impressive alumni as Eudon Choi, Hermione de Paula and Phoebe English. This season, Sarah Ryan’s sporty bondage, Carrie Ann Stein’s printed cloaks, Hiroko Nakajima’s colourful knits and George Styler’s global remix jumpsuits were all brave take on A/W 14. Highly structured top knots complemented each collection.
The inimitable Pam Hogg dedicated her collection to Pussy Riot, at the request of Amnesty International. Her signature high-shine leotards, OTT theatrical dresses and extravagant headpieces were offset by sleek locks underneath it all.
