last September, London Fashion Week (LFW) preached common themes of elegant fabrics, glorious chapels, and fashionable forests. Through these themes, Sylvia and I picked two of our favorites, and wrote about them here calling them: the A-team: AADNEVIK and Alistair James.
AADNEVIK – LFW SS18
Hila and Kristian Aadnevik presented a jungle-inspired show in their last collection (AW17) that celebrated women’s fierceness. Continuing this celebration and defying conventional stereotypes, AADNEVIK’s SS18 collection effortlessly made the circus simultaneously wild and elegant. The collection contained a roller coaster of bright colors and different fabrics ranging from leather and silk chiffon to French lace. Just watching the show had us feeling like we were on a fashion adventure where everything was possible and there were no limits. And for that, we crown AADNEVIK as ringmaster of last fashion season.
Alistair James – LFW SS18
Launched less than two years ago by designer duo David James Wise and Nicholas Alistair Walsh, Alistair James took us to church in September’s fashion season. Quite literally, the Alistair James presentation of the SS18 collection titled “LOVE CONQUERS ALL” took place at the Fitrozvia Chapel. The enchanted forest-themed sets captivated each “damsel in distress” model giving us a timeless, fairy-tale ambiance. While this was the duo’s first fashion presentation, we want to know what story the duo will tell next at AW18!
