LFW – Holly Fulton S/S 2014 collection
On the second day of London Fashion Week, Scottish designer Holly Fulton created an array of marriages. With 70s rock meeting Art Deco, and warm colours merging with cooler tones, Fulton’s collection was the hub of diversity and variation.
Inspired by “people who made their own things in the Seventies,” Fulton’s denim pieces featured embellished, hand-stitched flowers amongst decorative pencil skirts and fitted pinafore dresses. Alongside the Noosha Fox styled hair and captivating-yet-heavy eye shadow, Fulton’s opening outfits were strikingly beautiful.
However, in honour of Laura Ashley, Fulton’s later pieces included pastel pinks and flamboyant florals with a dash of the orient. Highlights included a geometric printed dress – perfect for a summer ball – and a feminine pink coat, ideal for those spring showers.
With the focus on an “elegant yet sexy silhouette,” Fulton’s ending pieces were a treat. With feathered coats, pleated skirts and slouchy jumpers heading up the last designs, the collection surpassed its aim. Reminiscent of holidays in Turkey and Morocco, Fulton’s final pieces emphasised heated gold and warm orange, although the contrast with silver accessories and sandals ensured added sparkle to this already bold collection.
