Caught in the mix
We’ve already showed you the runway looks via our Facebook page, and now is the time for a backstage pass. And since we really loved, both Gilles and Burberry collections we’ve decided to put them in the mix. Giles Spring 2014 collection had this little bit dark feel to it, but at the same time very fun take on the 90’s, with this bold usage of prints, by the famed fashion photographer Glen Luchford (you gotta check out his Prada campaign, from the the late nineties, more precisely 1997.) with Amber Valetta & Kate Moss oversize images, presented on quite a few dresses in the show. We also wanted to give you this SPECIAL BACKSTAGE PASS (thanks to some ah-mazing images by Lea Colombo for Dazed Digital). And last, but not least about GILES Spring 2014 collection, it was so much fun seeing dresses all covered in pastel bat prints and crystal lips, plus all of the models looked so funky, while wearing those Adidas trainers.
BURBERRY Spring 2014 – Backstage
Coming back to Burberry show, we have a completely different story, even though there’s a similarity with both designers using the pastel pink prints. But, boy oh boy, this was quite a “Pastel extravaganza” with the sweetest show finale ever and rose petals falling down over the models and on to the runway, making it the perfect ending of the show. As far as the show itself goes, we really loved the bold mix of polka dots with stripes and almost every single coat presented on the runway. And as far as I was listening Christopher Bailey giving out first interviews after the show, he was revealing quite interesting facts, how those gorge high waist skirts were made out of lace that was produced in rural England, and we are talking real Made in England and real English lace here. As far as pastel color scheme is concerned, it was actually inspired by the real English rose, which when in full bloom produces those powdery pastel tones, that Christopher Bailey ended up using through out the full collection.
AND THE SHOES, DON’T LET ME EVEN START WITH THE SHOES. Maybe they seem simple to you, but for me I’m just loving all of these ankle strap heels, with a thick t-strap up front, made in all of those lovely pastel shades.
