Nico Didonna catwalk show report A/W 2014 for LFW
It got hot, hot, hot at the Bloomsbury Baptist Church this afternoon as Nico Didonna presented his seductive autumn/winter 2014 collection. A wide range of sultry and velvety garments surged over the altar as the designer, who is known to express his Italian heritage through his designs, stuck to his roots once again.
It began with a shrug of elegance mixed in with a bold and rebellious strut. He fused these elements harmoniously to give a sharp edge to a sophisticated look. The materials were luxurious and the tones rich; dramatic plunge necklines, bare backs and figure hugging styles illustrated a spicy yet feminine theme. A beautifully tailored shirt/blazor was also featured in the collection , showing off Didonna’s deft tailoring skills.
The use of buttons was also used to embellish the menswear. Two dapper looking models enjoyed their strut in a number of extravagant suit jackets. One wore an interesting pink shirt, which seemed to be fastened in a way, which seemed incorrect, but was clearly a purposeful dash of style.
The show came to an end with mermaid greens and blues swimming down the aisles, and the audience rose as Nico hit the altar to take credit for his wonderful collection.
