ORLA KIELY AW15

Orla Kiely AW15

All Quiet in the Library. In a set designed by James Hatt, an Orla library was created that evoked a 1970s college building, complete with block font signs and emerald green desk lamps. Inspiration came from Ali McGraw in Love Story & a more modern Chloe Sevigny (albeit one in a beige turtleneck & oversized reading glasses); the models  softly treaded the floorboards, picking out books & whispering study notes between them. The O and the K from the brand was incorporated into several geometric prints, including felt overlay on black skirts. The green from the lamps was echoed in several different variations, from a bright ruffle-necked & belted dress to the trim on a grey woollen sweater, & a sparkly cocktail dress worn with a delicate scallop-trimmed blouse beneath. Graphic patterns intercut mohair sweaters & tan leather totes. The shoes continue to be designed in collaboration with Clarks.

Finally getting around to posting some of these photos from the gorgeous Paul Costelloe SS15 presentation last season. Beehives, brocade, & heavy white-soled plimsols were the order of the day, with backcombed hair, bows, & cinched-in waists modernised by oversized capes, chain linked bags, & platforms. And isn't that cornflower blue just gorgeous??

FAUSTINE STEINMETZ SS15

IMG_2728

Faustine Steinmetz SS15 was all about denim, redeveloped shredded white shirts, brilliant white platform sneakers, bed hair & natural makeup. The sporty aesthetic mixed in with a 90s vibe, blues, teals & the odd touch of dark blue denim. Initially the presentation seemed a little intimidating to shoot, but I kind of like how the dramatic shadows & shadowed cheekbones turned out! Stark, but entrancing.

PALMER // HARDING SS15

IMG_3150

This was undoubtedly my favourite collection from fashion week SS15, Palmer // Harding presented a beautifully modern, ethereal look consisting of burnt orange metallics, studded wire mesh slippers, & lighter than light draped silhouettes. Unlike some collections whose existence rests purely on the theatrical & the show, here were pieces that I could actually see styled into everyday life! Some of my favourite items included the high-necked sweaters & tees with cut-out embroidered motifs, & the delicately modest skirts with a flash of bronze cut through or a vibrant yellow lining dancing as the models strode into view. The collection was presented over at the wonderfully architectural Lincolns Inn Chapel Undercroft.

ORLA KIELY SS15 - FLOWER POWER

IMG_3029 copy

Orla Kiely SS15 was a throwback to the designer's roots (pun unintended): flower power, pattern, femininity & colour. Orla never fails to be creative with her presentation sets, & this season she displayed the collection over at the Vinyl Factory,  complete with working "gardener" painters in the background (real life Californian artist Alia Penner). The nostalgic wildflower motif was updated into the modern woman's wardrobe via patterned backpacks, neon waterproofs & relaxed silk pants. She continues her collaboration with Clarks, with loafers and mary jane t-bar sandals completing each look.
