The Mulleavy sisters, how do they do it? Their dresses, skirts, tops and cardies are like explosions of texture - this time in earthy shades and prints - yet still so cohesive and all about the body. Gareth Pugh displayed a liking for the Edward Scissorhands look
with his latest men's collection and we see a bit of that here with the tight black strapping and zigzag strips. They weren't shy about taking the Frankenstein approach to building up their layers in their crude but exquisite way. And the chiffons and whatever else applied on top of one another like collage remind me of nuno or laminate felting. I would kill to see what they could do with those techniques, it would make for a perfectly natural progression in their experimentation with layers of various fibres and fabrics.
How about those insane boots? Nicholas Kirkwood. Those will be the ones to beat for the remainder of the fall collections. Good luck.
