I was lucky enough to have a day off when Meadham Kirchhoff showed at London Fashion Week last month. I've been a fan of this English/French design duo since the beginning. Each season the boys fascinate, shock & inspire with their intricate details, unwavering colour palette and contemporary slant on historical costume, tailoring and couture.
Tucked up in my room in Whitefield; I had the pleasure of watching live-streaming of the show on Stylist. It was dark, mysterious and amazing to say the least...
Set against an industrial concrete backdrop, models paced in beautiful monochrome ensembles, showcasing side swept hair with dashes on red on their lips & nails.
High shine fabrics and PVC were featured throughout the collection.
Modern approaches to surface decoration and design were presented in the form of rubber ruffled trousers & reflective metallic leather shoes.
A haunting bride; embroidered lace veils took a new turn in the show. All white ensembles with nautical stripes evoked 1920's nostalgia.
Eccentric gold leather sling-backs were reminiscent of 17th Century styles.
Anyone for Tea?
Beautiful Victorian gingham pinnies worked there way into the Meadham Kirchhoff show, complete with ribbon trims and cute matching shirt collars.
Lace veils in the show gave me chills; I love the exquisite embroidery.
A strong air of nostalgia was intrinsic though the collection. The monochrome combo's were complimented well with bejewelled crowns and high shine leather shoes.
One of the last few dresses featured on the runway, I love this vintage 1940's inspired maxi. Definitely one of the show-stopping pieces, the lace trim & peter pan collar are lovely details.
What do you think of the collection?
Watch the show in action, shrouded by Electro beats; if your eyes are fast enough...
...these vintage vixens surely do one hell of a stomp!
