London Fashion Week – Romeo Pires Spring/Summer 2011

27 Sep

I rocked up to the Romeo Pires show not knowing what to expect. What I experienced was a quite bizarre and dark show, from the eerie ‘childhood’ music to the white painted faces. The inspiration seemed to be school, or perhaps a Victorian school…the white shirts, pinafores and braces seemed to say school to me anyway. I love the huge drop waists, waistlines loitering at knee level aren’t overly practical but coupled with the extra long shirts the slouchy effect was pretty chic. I also liked the slightly macabre prints – skulls with gold teeth and what looked like wombs or ET. I have a couple of close up pics, let me know what you think they are. Colour-wise, the collection was very basic with just stone, black and white. Like most of the London shows, the collection also featured wispy, sheer panels. To be totally honest, although I liked elements of the collection I don’t think any of it really appealed to me but I would love to see the Autumn/Winter collection.
