Andrew Majtenyi Autumn Winter 2010

24 Feb
When Reena asked me to guestblog for her, I was well-chuffed.  Cause Reena is the shiznizz.  Anyway.

The Andrew Majtenyi show was held on the 5th floor of Arundel House (I ❤ elevators).  It was quite a small venue but I was happy out as the music was mixed by Jodie Harsh. Win.  Any show that starts with a remix of YeahYeahYeahs is alright by me.

The inspiration of the collection was post-recession optimism. Something we can definitely use in the current economic climate (to be said in a Dad-esque voice). There were classic cuts; some twopieces, dresses and coats; throughout the show.  It was a colour palette of greys, charcoals, and dusky pinks. There was some repetition in the collection, but overall it was all very wearable and well constructed. I loved the use of wool and different materials, in contrast with one another.  


I really enjoyed the print used on some of the dresses, of a girl walking a dog.  I can picture this pink dress in Regents park in Spring, with a wee dog.  Roll on Spring time. Another cheeky print used was one of fast food. Nomnom.

What really impressed me was these slick trousers with a panel of embroidery down the inside of the leg.  SaveOurShoes friend Jen would rock these I think with uber skyscraper heels.
Now let us take a moment to appreciate the socks and heels combo.  Andrew is a man after my own heart.  One can never have enough of combining socks with heels.  The shoes were by Steve Madden and they really were perfectly styled with the collection.

I really enjoyed the show, and it was my first at LFW this season, so it went off to a good start. Thanks Reena.
