This is a guest post by Maria Pierides, one of our fabulous competition winners. She’s been hitting the tents at Somerset House as a guest fashion reporter for My Fashion Life to cover as many of London’s spring shows as she can make – find out how she got on when we armed her with a bag full of tickets and sent her packing…
Who: Teatum Jones
What: Traditional masculine tailoring with a feminine aesthetic. The theme was ‘sometimes it snows in April’, which made us expect snow a la Burberry circa A/W 2011… alas the vicinity remained snowless. The presentation featured a video, some pieces displayed on mannequins and four models posing up a storm on a platform in the middle of the room.
Highlights: Models seemed so choreographed yet somewhat spontaneous in their actions and manoeuvres – as if they were being fed directions through an earpiece.
Lowlights: Honestly? We wanted more.
Overall: A running theme if ever there was one. The silhouettes, necklines and overall structures of pieces in the main presentation acted as a blank canvas for the designs. Pale pinks, blues and lilacs were found on the billowing and form fitted dresses alike, with the real difference in the garments being in the cut and shape as opposed to texture, colour and pattern.
