Ashish catwalk show report A/W 2015 for LFW
The Topshop Show Space at Tate Britain opened its doors again today for the Ashish autumn/winter 2015 catwalk show.
Inspired by Jane Fonda in Klute, the risqué collection featured knee-high, scarlet lace-ups, emblazoned sweaters and a prodigious amount of fur, seemingly held together with metal beads.
A primal theme took centre stage, with models showcasing a stream of oversized, patchwork furs in the form of sweaters, longline coats and T-shirt dresses. Lacy négligée and camis also made an appearance with parkas, highlighting leopard print lining, thrown over the top and often falling off the shoulder. Baggy bomber jackets were adorned with an updated, sequinned camo print, and paired with dismantled jeans laced back together (and, of course, studded to within an inch of their existence).
Double denim also made a return in tie-dye and all-over embellishment; fluid, camouflage trousers, featuring fluffy hemlines, contrasted sharply with glittering, checked jumpers, complete with pulled beading and holes. The miscellany of printed fabrics, all drenched in studs and sequins, met the odd crude slogan.
Faded cerulean and khaki, with bursts of carnation pink and lemon, flowed into the constant, crimson, PVC footwear. This, in turn, complemented models’ bold lipstick, helping exude a look-at-me nonchalance. Light-hearted and outrageous, Ashish has successfully stayed true to the brand by producing a unique, season-appropriate collection.
