London Fashion Week houses many creative designers. One show in particular that caught attention of Fashion Thirst this season was the debut collection by Hila and Kristian Aadnevik. Many celebrities attended the fashion show including Egypt Official who sat front row.
Their latest looks provided a unique insight into the world of Alexander Jamieson, drawing inspiration from Alexander’s depiction of the heavens in a celestial atlas, star maps, and ancient mythology. Another point of inspiration was drawn from the daughter of Zeus, Urania. A representation of universal love and the Holy Spirit.
This was depicted throughout the collection beautifully, through the use of elegant designs that captured the mystical characteristics of Urania. Silhouettes were graceful, feminine with voluminous shape and layering techniques applied throughout the collection.
Transparent and metallic fabrics captured the strong sense of mythology and the heavens above, paired with natural tones, baby blue and deep shades of black and gold. Overall highlighting the craftsmanship and innovative detail applied to each look created by Hila and Kristian.
Staying in the elements of bright colours and neon tones Jeremy Scott showcased his SS19 collection in New York City. Using images of himself in polaroids as the graphics on tote bags, dresses and hoodies Scott looks back on his personal creative journey as inspiration for this collection.
In his own words he shared on an Instagram post, Scott reveals, ”This season for my show I took inspiration from old polaroids I took of myself from 1996 experimenting with makeup and personas, gender-bending looks and DIY hairstyles I created on myself before I had a runway and models to express my inspirations and ideas for the world to see. 'Meta Muse'."
Using the words ‘riot’ ‘peace’ ‘future’ ‘resist’ in huge letters all over some of his pieces, Scott amazingly incorporates his political views in this collection with army surplus jackets, camo print skirts, dungaree-boot hybrids, bomber jackets, and jumpers.
Also adding Pokemon character Pikachu on the knitwear co-ords for the women and a hot pink sweater for the males, not to mention the basketball team logos and clear PVC fabric with diamonds, Scott managed to put together a mixture that has come together to make a great collection.
Jeremy Scott has approached fashion unapologetically and has remained just that and is why he is still such a big influence in the fashion industry.
