Meadham Kirchhoff

Ed Meadham and Ben Kirchhoff well and truly moved away from their signature gothic aesthetic last season. This season, they met somewhere in the middle with the pretty fabrics and bright colours they favored last season, but also with darker elements like the psychedelic colour matching and painted biker jackets. What I love about Meadham Kirchhoff's collections, is how eclectic they are. This season had me thinking of babushka dolls and ethnic bridal gowns. It is as though they have rummaged through a little girl's dressing up box. The shows are always emotionally charged and as Ed Meadham described them "a visual assault". Downright charming.

Nick Knight's 200 Portraits

The videos from the shoots Nick Knight did to commemorate i-D's 30th birthday are fantastic. Ash Stymest's was my favourite though.

Mary Katrantzou

I do not know how someone would go about designing pieces as complex, beautiful and mystical as the pieces in Mary Katrantzou's S/S 2011 collection. A blast of dynamic colour and intricately designed prints are a huge contrast from the muted pallets we saw throughout many collections at fashion week. This is why London Fashion Week is my favourite, the trends are always so varied. You are never bored and you never know what is coming next. embroidered lampshades for skirts? genius!

Hannah Marshall

Sheer was again beautifully showcased in Hannah Marshall's S/S 2011 collection. Combined with masculine tailoring, high necklines and double collars, the collection was much less pretty than Nicoll's collection, however had the same mysterious elegance to it. Without a doubt, one of my favourite fashion week shows, I'm in love.

Richard Nicoll

Monochrome, sheer, latex and leather. Richard Nicoll's Spring/Summer 2011 show was romantic but sinister. Ethereal flowing gowns had models floating down the catwalk however there was undertones of a futuristic almost alien influence in the necklines and latex trims which kept the collection from becoming sickly. a perfectly balanced, calculated but not contrived collection from Mr. Nicoll this fashion week.

touched.

"the apparent divergence between mind and body, subject and object, self and other is a necessary condition for the constitution of subjectivity.

the same difference as exists between touching and being touched, between looking and being looked at, between the sentient and the sensible"
