Emilio de la Morena catwalk show report A/W 2015 for LFW
Sited in the Courtyard Showspace at Somerset House, on a bright winter’s afternoon, the Emilio de la Morena show was one of the last to grace the catwalk for autumn/winter 2015 – and in style.
Beautiful, metallic body-con dresses in winning hues of gold, silver and bronze were first to appear. Perfectly shaped to the body, they featured intricate detailing, including gathering, studs and pleats. Mesh, contrast trims and flippy skirts created subtle hints of a sporty aesthetic, whereas deep, sweetheart necklines and thigh-high slits generated the opposite effect. Rich velvet blocks of colour gently heralded the stream of dresses that were to follow, in asymmetrical abundance: shoulders, panelling and hemlines.
A boysenberry and black-based colour palette was enhanced by sophisticated pops of fuchsia, cobalt and teal, creating a refined collection that was undoubtedly intended to enhance the female form.
More revealing dresses incorporated lace, tassels and diamond cut-outs, harmoniously juxtaposing elaborate pattern and texture. Meanwhile, A-line coats, in similar shimmering fabrics, were meticulously placed over skirts of varying lengths; outfits were completed with monochrome court shoes, often with delicate straps crossed up to the shin, and black, leather gloves, to toughen up the sultry exterior.
