Article 36 LFW 2 Hannah Marsha - The London Style Journal
Fortunately, the fashion gods were looking down on me yesterday, getting me into the Felder Felder/ Hannah Marshall show in the BFC space. Tickets for this were most coveted, so I am especially grateful that I was able to attend.
Felder Felder are a brand that are a little too hard and fashion edgy for me, with lots of slithering scale-like leather with minute razor tucks with incredibly high-hemmed circle skirts. It was a strong collection, and without a doubt we will be seeing high street copies of their work showing up in mere minutes.
I've quite liked Hannah Marshall's simple aesthetic for a while now, and am glad that her work has been getting more and more praise from the fashion and lifestyle press. Part of my admiration comes from the obvious hard work that Hannah and her team put into each collection.
I had half been expecting to see a wash of mesh, as with the 90's influence, it's right on time for that trend to have a resurface. We've already seen hints of the mesh maxi in Topshop, but I think it is this collection that really confirms the next stage.
Décolletage was obviously at the forefront of Marshalls mind when designing this collection, as a whopping 8 of the 18 looks on show included some heavy breast hinting, or full on nipple exposure. I enjoyed the collection, and was impressed to see particular care had been taken to create looks that were new interpretations, but my prudish northern ways might have wanted to see a hint of lacy bra on some of those fabulousy pendulous free flowing breasts.
My favourite, and I'm sure many others, piece was the finale frock, somehow moulding with my inner interpretation of futurism (thank De Nomolos of Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey fame), and adding some well needed intracacy via the mega pleating around the neckline.
