|IMAGE- FASHION SCOUT|
The penultimate day of London fashion week has arrived, amongst a flood worthy amount of rain. Or were they my tears? From what sat in my bag, placed within a busy classrom, full of eager make-up students, was my ticket to Scottish designer Pam Hogg’s show.
Gutted doesn’t even begin to describe it.
As one of Lady Gaga’s favouirte designers, we all knew her collection would be pretty outrageous. And Hogg did not dissapoint. Latex bodysuits, panelled dressed and super tight pencil skirts, in bold shades of silver and yellow alongisde SS14 staples monochrome and dusky pink, models heads were decorated with rather interesting headwear. These took the term ‘floral crown’ to the next level.
Make-up however, was very underplayed in comparision. The Body Shop team, lined the models waterlines with white kohl, and kept lashes, brows and lips subtle, whilst the Label M stylists used rollers to create bouncy, sexy curls.
From bold latex, to a wearable collection packed with beautifully soft pastels. Chrsitopher Bailey has done it once again. I am seriously in love with the SS14 Burberry Prorsum range.
The show, held near Kensington Gardens, was , of course, attended by Burberry ‘faces’ Sienna Miller and Alex Chung, and had a FROW to rivial House of Holland and Mulberry.
Sheer skirts and blouses, cashmere jumpers, pencil dresses and of course, the staple Burberry trench, were all treated to soft washes of candy pastels. And if we weren’t convinced this collection was aimed at Spring-time, the petals which descended on the guests during the finale, confirmed which season Bailey was designing for.
Make-up artist Wendy Rowe, used Burberrys make-up range to create a soft, pretty make-up inspired by an English Rose. With a soft diffusion of pink buffed onto eyes and an earth blush for cheek countour, skin was naturally glowing.
Well, Burberry, this collection for me, is what dreams are made of. God help my credit card.
From a soft Spring at Burberry, to what usually resembles an AW collection at Giles.
From show stopping black and taupe gowns, accesorised with ostrich feathers, to bold lip prints and dresses featuring images of sultry women, the collection seemed rather disjointed. But, no doubt, aspects of each piece will make it onto our high street fairly soon.
With hair swept into loose side plaits, make-up had an etheral feel, again usually seen on the February AW catwaks.
With one day left, we can be sure that from what we have seen so far, in Spring Summer 2014 anything goes!
