A rectangle shaped catwalk became home-ground for models to float down at the Timur Kim A/W showcase, whilst Don McLean’s “American Pie” set the chilled atmosphere.
To begin, geometric wallpaper prints inspired by the ceilings of St-Petersburg Hermitage took to the catwalk in the form of co-ord trouser suits. Cigarette trouser shapes were toughened up with biker jackets and often seen styled with clashing print scarves.
Hefty collared, mid length granddad style shirts emulated a nostalgic Victorian bed-dress vibe, which when styled with a classic pair of brogues became incredibly wearable and added an Indie edge. Tousled bed-head hair empahsised the look and gave a sense of frivolous, flirty fun.
Following this, 1950′s flippy skater dresses made an appearance and, although sticking to wallpaper prints, a touch of modernism was incorporated through the use of liquid metal brogues in a golf tone, thus oozing extravagance.
A palette of blue hues surfaced mid-way through the show, reinterpreting SS13′s popular stripe trend in the form of a baby blue and black pinstripe trench coat – A usual colour clash ‘no-go’ that surprisingly worked thanks to a bit of smart tailoring and tropme-l’oeil pleating.
We repeatedly saw Kim’s collection logo printed onto oversized t-shirts that were tucked into high-waisted midi skirts, reverting back to the casual indie style seen earlier on. Knee length culottes with co-ordinating shell tops draped the models and garments became reminiscent of traffic light ice lollies, combining punchy tropical block colours with the reoccurring geometric prints. This look similarly appeared in earthy, tribal shades, demonstrating versatility and choice within the collection.
