Fashion collaborations are where you see some of the most creative genius on the catwalk. I love the merging of two different minds or elements, to create this glorious hybrid creature.
At London Fashion Week this season, one of my current favourite contemporary designers Vin + Omi, collaborated with fashion maven, business mogul and all-round fearless style icon Michelle Violy Harper, for their Autumn Winter 2017 collection SUBMERGE.
The results are fabulous, just as I expected. New silhouette, shapes and patterns have been introduced, pushing the boundaries and manipulating the fabric in new ways. See above seahorse dancing in pale blue !!!
Talking of fabric, the use of recycled plastic taken from the ocean, as well as sustainable latex and wool definitely pleased the eco-fashion crowd (me included!).
Vin + Omi created the collection with Michelle as their muse, making clothes for women like her who are creative and art-loving, and the result is ground-breaking, vibrant, avant-garde and ethically conscious to boot!
Although primarily a female collection there were some pieces for the men although much softer this season. A gentle Neptune !
