LFW Streetstyle: Antipodium X2

Beautiful Hand of Fatima necklace.

I love how she mixed two different material pieces from the Antipodium A/W11 collection. A cotton tide print top and a light chiffon tide print maxi skirt.

Christopher Shannon AW11

Christopher Shannon is genius. OK he might not be a scientific genius but his menswear collection is really good. His collection is inspired by his interest in photojournalism and David Attenborough’s Planet series, where he noticed sportswear such as old tracksuit tops were worn by tribes along with their traditional clothes.

This barber style, quilted jumper is my favourite. There is also same style tracksuit bottoms.

Here you can see the tribal influence with the lines of Peruvian style embellished fabrics on the top of the classic white shirts. 

I love the ruffles of nylon waterproof coat-like material on a normal grey jacket hoodie

More nylon ruffles  and frills around nylon tracksuit bottoms 

I love the mesh of different fabrics he has used. Nylon is mixed with knitted fabrics and Peruvian style embellishment. I also love how he scouts his models for his show from the street so they are just regular lads walking down the catwalk. He has truly changed peoples views on menswear. Can’t wait to see what he’s going to do next!

Ziggy Stardust-inspired

Balmain AW11

You know you can instantly tell that it’s a Balmain model walking down the catwalk. Still trying to decide if that’s a good thing but nevertheless Christophe Decarnin has a signature style. It’s a shame he didn’t show up at the end. He was resting after being treated for an unconfirmed illness. Besides that drama, the show must go on. His collection stayed away from last seasons punk and was very much Glam Rock. Instead of last seasons soundtrack of Sid Vicious’s “My Way”, it was David Bowie’s “Lady Grinning Soul” off Aladdin Sane. Ziggy Stardust was clearly the inspiration behind the collection. The crystal-encrusted, all-in-one jumpsuits, the metallic leather peacked-lapel blazer in ice blue and electric yellow and the technicolour, wet-look leggins all screamed Mr Stardust. Is there anything I would consider wearing? Probably not but I think that’s the Balmain appeal. No doubt the metallic leather blazers will fly out the shops and make a big profit.

Inspiration

Ziggy Stardust

New York Dolls

Jobriath – he was the American version of Ziggy Stardust. Americans didn’t like him very much and thought he was weird so he flopped.

Adam Ant


London Street Style

I love the cardigan she’s wearing. I love the coloured diamonds that pop up and the black lines. A loose hair do with some grey peep toe pumps makes this look effortlessly chic.


Wake me up before you GO-GO

D&G AW11

D&G took us back to George Michael’s “Choose Life” t-shirt from that Wham video that we love to hate – “Wake me up before you GO-GO”. It’s reminded me of mid-eighties London Fashion. Katharine Hamnett and her political t-shirts and Bodymap’s David Holah and Stevie Stewart. D&G definitely didn’t want people to take the collection to serious and that’s probably what the fans of the show want from them. Fun, loud and youth. The models glided down that catwalk to Madonna’s 1990 hit “Vogue” in hues of acid yellow, bright orange and highlighter pink. Not everyone’s cup of tea but they didn’t mind. There was alphabet print everywhere on long floaty dresses and tight black and white leggings. There were converse-like high-heeled sneakers and plastic charm necklaces that I could see my 15 year old sister wearing. Eighties oversized acid blazers and cropped jumpers in black and yellow, black and yellow (8). A lot of colour was splatted everywhere, even on the runaway. It’s always nice to see D&G signature chiffon floaty dresses that one day, I will buy! I love the alphabet printed blouse in dark pink, that’s something that I would consider buying. Everything else is a little too Stephen Sprouse for me but I can definitely see girls younger rocking it.
