Three Floor autumn/winter 2016 collection presentation for LFW
Three Floor presented regal fashion at their autumn/winter 2016 collection at Elms Lesters Painting Rooms for London Fashion Week. From lace cut sleeves to netted skirts, the formal wear had a touch of flair.
Walking into the presentation room for Three Floor, crisp white furniture- white wooden doors, plush chairs, and stools- are placed around the room. The doors have ivy plants bursting through the doors, the plush chairs surrounded by beautiful forest flowers- with colours such as fuchsia, purple and red filling the sparse room with effervescent colours. The small white stool surrounded by forestry resembles that of a mushroom sprouting in the woodland, setting the scene for the designs.
Purple is seen as the most regal of colours, exclusively only available to royalty once upon a time. Three Floor uses this concept to present a luxurious line, filled with victorian style dresses and flowy skirts. Interestingly, purple is the theme throughout the line, and to defy tradition, bright red skirts and tights are paired with deep purple accessories, shoes and blouses. Showcasing the ombre trend, the models appeared wearing ombre tights that slowly faded to black, showing ombre may be coming back with a vengeance this autumn.
The clothing accompanied its surroundings, particularly a standout fuchsia dress matching the flowers that accent the room. Looking at the room itself, one would think the collection would be earthy, with beiges and khaki greens. However the regality of the outfits looked beautiful against the woodland; it was as if seeing two worlds collide.
This was a wonderful presentation by Three Floor and the experimentation of traditionally clashing colours really worked. Despite the designs perhaps not being for the everyday woman perhaps, they are at the very least, wonderful to look at.
