Renli Su catwalk show report A/W 2014 for LFW
Simplicity gone further than any other fashion house before, the neutral designs, patterns and colours gave this collection of clothing something special.
Natural fibres made up the outfits, with them being so delicate that they couldn’t withstand more than ten minutes of light every half an hour. The simple shape of the clothing gave feminine definition hidden underneath the straight lines of the clothing, with the shadow of a woman underneath.
The shades of white, cream, beige and grey made up the collection, hinting warmth towards the cooler weather to come, defying winter. Whether it was a small Peter Pan collar, or square same-shaded pockets, the tiny details that were subtly noticed were the main attraction of the clothing, reminding how the small things matter.
Less definitely was more for this collection, the loose-fitting shapes hung off the models’ frames, with the symmetric and straight lines leaving the curves of the body to define the outfit. Everything about the clothing resonated of simpler times, when embellishment and embroidery didn’t define clothing, so again keeping in line with the neutral coming trends of make-up and fashion.
The extravagant environment of Freemasons’ Hall in London was the perfect contrast for this beyond simple collection, giving more of an impact when viewing this game-changing show.
