British handbag brand AEHVA London has been a favourite with celebrities since its first season, and has now been recognised as one of the best by luxury online shop 1st dibs.
The collection, shown at London Fashion Week, is characterised by strong colour palettes and unique structures. Luxury and style are built in through careful tailoring, from zip detail and shading to piping and delicate buckles.
Whiles shapes are generally rounded, the overlapping of shapes creates a softly geometric style. This is complemented by an array of exotic and interesting materials and accessories, from bamboo style handles, silver and bronze latches and snakeskin.
Alberto Guardiani’s Tribal Lady range incorporates modern shoe design with traditional natural patterns inspired by Maori, Native American and Bornean art. The clean cut angles of the straps and geometric patterns complement the warm colours and soft suede. Using a palette based on brown, yellow and blue, the collection blends natural earth colours with burst of colour to create eye catching footwear that will compliment your summer wardrobe. The shape of the shoes draws on this season’s trend for platforms, in a timeless Italian fashion, making them both original and wearable.
What else would we expect? Pam Hogg’s AW16 collection pushed the boundaries even more - yes, it was possible - with a sexualised storm of attitude at Freemasons Hall during London Fashion Week.
Sky high platforms, of course, accompanied models clad in skin tight PVC catsuits as they strutted down the catwalk, covered in weapon like studs and spikes. Stars made their cameo once more, and splattered paint prints reminded us that this fashion game is art. A form of expression. Something that Pam Hogg does extremely well - expressionism. However extreme.
The collection is dark, stormy and overtly sexy. She’s holding nothing back.
Models had everything on show with mesh body suits appliquéd with stars and a stripe to cover what can barely be left to the imagination.
Did you catch The Brit Awards? Then you would have seen Hogg’s iconic model Sadie Pinn shock the audience with an impromptu appearance. Skimpy. Bold. Statement. It’s all about the shock factor.
Pam Hogg does punk, yet still throws a spanner in the mix once in a while. This time, with umbrella skirts and splashes of red, yellow and acid green. The living dolls she creates allow for total fantasy dressing. Floor length gold dress or skin tight black mesh? It’s your call.
It’s this feminine celebration of androgyny that Hogg has become known for, and each year the crowd gets bigger. What can she possibly do next? Perhaps dainty pink dresses and ballerina flats? That would throw everyone off… Pam Hogg gone pretty? Yeah, probably not.
