LFW AW14/15 Day 3 - Palmer//Harding AW14

Wonders at executing a concept, the duo that are palmer//harding do it again; wowing us yesterday with a collection inspired by paper.
Yes, simply those little sheets that fill our Fashion Week diaries....diaries that by now are inevitably scrawled with show times and endless lists of autumn/winter wardrobe must haves.

Matthew & Levi have successfully managed interpret a potentially complex idea. They maintained the simple and clean fragility that has become their image, however stunned with an unexpected injection of bold colour and bright neon’s mixed among very intricate detailing.
Shirts, in the clean paper white poplin from Cotton USA, left backstage perfectly complete with a beautiful Sheaffer pen and custom paper clip fastenings. The audience were left captivated by a range of mesmerising new shapes and textures created through elaborate textile manipulation. Not only did these intrigue, but they complement the entire collection which again appears to go against our fixed ideas on aesthetic fit and form.

The concept was translated and implemented with masterful precision as Central Saint Martins’ platform theatre was transformed into a paper maze. Ginormous paper streams hung from floor to ceiling and piles of A4 sheets lay strewn across the floor as models wove amongst the crowd on scattered seating around the catwalk itself.

Apart from a near quick-change disaster, everyone (models and team included) appeared to be having a great time, but that is not surprise when working with palmer//harding.
Thanks again Matthew & Levi...hope to see you next season!
