Presented by Fashion Scout - Freemasons’ Hall, February 19th London Fashion Week Day 3
The inspiration behind Carballosa’s Autumn/Winter 2017 collection was clear to see. Described as “the relationship between the depth of the exotic underwater world and the limitless universe,” the theme was captured through the designer’s use of colour, movement, and embellishments, as well as the fabric textures and lustres.
Extravagantly embellished sleeves were featured throughout the collection, showcased brilliantly through Carballosa’s signature use of gossamer fabrics, which were also used to add extraordinary volume to the pieces, as well as to create both exaggerated asymmetrical, and classic feminine silhouettes.
Adding to the exotic underwater motif of the show, models took the catwalk in a very restful, noticeably slow pace. As well, models in specific garments were seen to hold their skirt trains out behind them, and lightly sway them as they walked in order to create extra movement and to accentuate the fluidity of the pieces.
Wet ocean tousled strands of hair lining the face, along with intricate one of a kind headpieces that looked to be inspired by coral and seaweed adorned each model and added a certain je ne sais quoi to compliment the entire collection.
