Sitting in what felt like the inside of a chocolate bar the luxurious room translated perfectly with the lux clothing. Tribal beats underpinned the ‘Tribal Attitudes’ theme of the SS14 show and created a rushing atmosper which left bloggers jigging in their PVC.
The models had been styled to perfection with shimmering cheekbones and structured, oriental and sleek ponytails. Cold-shoulders, waist cut-outs and mid-riff baring two-pieces exposed svelte and tanned skin tones. The hues of the show maintained the lux atmosphere; with caramel, navy, metallic and black. Silk, embroidery and fringing moved the ‘tribal’ designs towards an oriental feel. The combination of structured and curved lines (though not entirely original) were indulgent in sports lux trends and verged on 20’s in its dark glamour.
Gul Agis’ SS14 show was a lesson in sexy, sports-lux. Showing others how it’s done her show was wild yet mysterious. AND she gave CUB two seats. Absolutely fabulous, darling.
By far my favourite event of the day, Lug Van Siga’s dark, sultry show was everything that I imagined London Fashion Week to be. As soon as the lights dimmed and the upbeat, tribal music kicked in, we knew we were in for something a bit special. The collection certainly did not disappoint!
Dominated by geometric tribal prints, black and white contrast, and metallic hues of gold and topped off with monochrome and tassels, each piece easily slipped in with the theme. Keeping accessories minimal, focus was drawn closely to the sultry yet tribal mood of the clothes. I essentially wanted every piece that dominantly strode past me hung up in my wardrobe for next Spring.
The designs combined cultural heritage with contemporary appeal; a definite flapper girl 1920’s approach juxtaposed with baroque and tribal patterns. Mixing the feminine and masculine gave the garments a unique edge that I adored. Too fabulous.
