Kit Neale catwalk show report A/W 2015 for LCM
If there was ever a fashion week for children, (and wait, there actually was one in 2013 – it debuted in London, if you must know), then designer Kit Neale would be the star of the show. Featuring theatrically coloured, loud-mouthed trousers and Paddington Bear-esque dyed jumpers; Neale’s A/W 2015 campaign at Victoria House was off to a flying-coloured start.
The message is clear: the black coats and muted scarves British men are often fond of during the winter months (or the navy jackets and burgundy knitwear if they fancy pushing the boat out)? Gone. Instead, welcome bold burnt-orange coats with bright blue hats. Say hello to the heritage hipster rucksack and the casual man-bag. And finally, embrace the navy jacket (furry, this time, no cotton in sight!) and oversized sun-inspired earrings. Yes, Kit Neale has brought summer to winter in this collection!
But that’s not all. To add even more to this fun-inducing line, the element of punk has been brought in. Influenced by the DIY passions of a largely bygone era, Kit Neale’s collection features plenty of patches to enrich its pieces.
An eye-catching line that suggests more S/S than A/W, Kit Neale definitely has a beautifully creative imagination.
