Vin + Omi autumn/winter 2016 collection catwalk show for LFW
Just as everyone is starting to get tired and Fashion Week is winding down, Vin + Omi explode forth with a wild and wonderful collection to get everyone excited again. With a title like Colourotic, we were expecting a bright, bold show and the quirky design duo did not disappoint.
The vibrant colour palette – which even found its way into the pastel-hued tissue paper that covered the catwalk – was apparently inspired by shades of nail polish. Every model was dressed head-to-toe in a different bold shade. Pretty shades of lilac, pink, sky blue and bright yellow were given a tough edge by bondage-inspired shapes and materials that included corsets covered in spikes, thigh-high boots and super short hot pants. Meanwhile, bolder shades of red and orange made for standout statement looks, especially those paired with super high heels and dramatic finger decorations.
Actress Jane Horrocks – best known for Absolutely Fabulous – closed the show in an all-white look consisting of an appliquéd mini-dress and dramatic wig. Hers is not a name you might normally associate with fashion week, but Vin + Omi have recently worked on a series of costumes for her character, Bubbles, in the new AbFab movie.
