Roksanda Mixes Psychedelic Swirls with Classic 40s Glamour at London Fashion Week
Take a look at the Roksanda AW 2015 collection shown at London Fashion Week. We deliver you highlights from the runway show including a close up look at the stunning fur and wool creations and also bring you an exclusive interview with the designer.
First see the models transformed in hair and makeup with a retro 40s glamour look, dark red lips and rolled hair. The sophisticated elegant nostalgic style was continued in the garments which featured a selection of full skirts, dresses and long coats. Dashes of 60s psychedelia appeared in the bright acid colors and swirling patterns which were replicated in the specially constructed curving catwalk made by London based set designer and artist Gary Card.
Designer Roksanda Ilincic spoke to us about her collection and explained how despite having no background in surface or textile design it was texture that was the starting point this season. She wanted to create unusual looks mixing different elements like silk with PVC and silk jerseys with heavy felt whilst capturing a classic winter feeling in juxtaposition to the manmade colors and fibres, like in her stunning use of bright cobalt blue set against fluorescent pink.
Roksanda also talks about the belts as a focal point as they continue the natural progression of the organic curls and swirling shapes as well as maintaining the significance of the accessory which the brand has become somewhat known for. Other pieces included turtlenecks, wide leg trousers, long cage dresses and fur stoles and clutch bags with tassel details.
