Palmer // Harding catwalk show report S/S 2015 for LFW
If one word was used to sum up the collection, it would be nothing less than angelic. The flow of the fabric from outfit to outfit was none other than brilliance of design. The colours were neutral with embellishments of shimmering reds and blues, however still understated on the clothing, and there were some metallic burnt oranges that shone out from select outfits to match the primary colour on the invitation. It stood out boldly against the feminine lines, with loose seams and flowing material an illusion of angels was created.
Age was also not a factor regarding the collection, with models of ranging groups, however all showing the simplicity of the collection. Neutrals are key to the season with creams, whites, beiges and ivory taking the most part, also being decorated with lemon yellow, pink, and blue.
Levi Palmer, a graduate from Central Saint Martins, and his equally talented partner, Matthew Harding, create clothing that is both desirable and flattering to the female figure. The hair was all clean-cut, makeup simple with emphasis on the cheekbones, and accessories minimal. The shoes were as close to barefoot as fashion can come, with mesh embellished with diamantés, however far from anything tacky. The whole ensemble sang out elegance.
The collection was a beautiful taster of the female enhancing spring/summer to come, imagine a beautiful woman with long clean-cut hair wandering through a flower field and you’re nearly there.
