Songzio's paper-thin layers showcased an exercise in restraint so as to not create an outlandish or garish collection but instead heralded a demure take on tailoring and transparency. The fluidity seen on a thin coat juxtaposed the tailored pieces underneath while gladiator sandals with gold caps or patent leather accents added some edge to the collection that took heavy inspiration from the way women dress, like shirt dresses cinched at the waist in.
The platinum wigs worn by the models at Julius' striking Spring/Summer 2015 collection were the most colorful things on the runway. The mostly-black collection was anchored by the South Korean label's signature tailor. Sleeveless jackets worn with super slim cigarette pants created quite an austere summer look but one that this label has heralded from its inception; the formula obviously works so why fix what's not broken?
Nicomede Talavera's Spring/Summer 2015 designs proffered a new kind of armor for the waif-ish models that paraded down his black runway. Patchwork and raw edges played well together to create an interesting take on layering that saw voluminous pants in technical fabrics over elongated vests with leather and tartan melding together, a sort of metaphor for the diversity that London offers residents and visitors alike. Short sleeved jackets looked androgynous and cool while the various textures resulted in a smorgasbord of eye candy.
