On the evening of day two London Fashion Week, Helter studios shared Elms Lesters Painting Rooms with Omer Asim, as he covered the ground floor, and the Helter duo showed their SS17 collection on the first floor.
To say that Jeraldine Ngs’s and Willis Tan’s second collection presentation was flawless would be an understatement. The womenswear design duo combined a minimalist and sculptural approach towards dress-making within an adventurous set of white lights and darkness to bring emphasis and a sense of mystery to the clothing.
In an interview held between Helter and I, Jeraldine expressed the influence from sea creatures when composing Collection II. This is recognisable in the structural elements of their daring designs, yet still encourages curiosity within the viewers mind.
From defined shoulder pads, to tailored trousers reaching out of the darkness of the beautifully constructed set, the minimalist environment rippled through the inspiring collection.
