Fyodor Golan catwalk show report A/W 2015 for LFW
Welcome to the colour wheel, where My Little Pony meets embroidered orchids, sportswear aesthetics and a spectrum of bright shades. Fyodor Golan brought us something so real that it went way beyond what we already know. Pops of purple, pink, red and acid green came floating down the catwalk demanding attention, and with inspiration from Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong, the collection was innovative, exciting and daring.
After collaborating with My Little Pony this season, the Fyodor Golan show featured ponies collaged over garments, bringing an innocence to the collection along with a sense of nostalgia and naivety, allowing us to relive our childhood memories.
Their collaboration with Michael Wolf brought us plasticised textured prints based on the photographer’s colourful and abstract work of Hong Kong’s housing complexes.
In contrast, other pieces demonstrated a clear fusion of Asian influences whilst colour and material combinations violently echoed all the colours of the rainbow. Amongst our favourite pieces were the lime green fur bomber jacket and a purple two-piece suit with contrasting black and green belt. These pieces oozed confidence and sophistication – something that was prominent throughout the show.
Above all, Fyodor Golan brought a collection which transported us to a world we had not yet discovered, combining clean geometrical silhouettes with sportswear and modern luxury.
