Another, Vauxhall Fashion Scout, show-stopper, Joanne Hynes marvelled the turn-out with her 60s colour palettes, futuristic fantasies and Harajuku girl touches.
Colour and texture play were the consensus for her SS12 presentation; eye-popping, PVC brights met equally, colourful-clashing leathers and foils. A refreshing revival of pre-season’s, colour blocking trend.
Shapes wise; wide-brimmed sleeves and waists as well as cropped lines, surfaced as the dominant silhouette. The classic shirt turned playful with a generous dosing of fish scale, sequined tubes lining the centre parting. The blazer also got a look in, in primary red leathers and gold, foil sleeves.
An obvious pop-art influence emerged with the first prints; appliqué and emblazoned across dresses in foils, silver especially. Latex leggings dripped down the back of legs like acrylic paint.
Accessories followed the established suit; PVC clutches in emerald greens and ruby reds provided a tamer take on colour-blocking. Generously-sized jewels were scattered from necks on PVC chokers, down to torsos inferring 80s disco-glam. Oversized animal pendants in conflicting textures and colours hinted at the Japanese, Harjuku girl influence, completing the mishmash of eclectic influences.
