Latex in the office? Thanks Phoebe English!

A/W 15 Phoebe English
As I get older and more business savvy my sartorial senses have been gravitating towards office wear. Being seen as a more serious role as a magazine editor-in-chief plus my mother keeps nagging that I need to look more professional-like the women in the tabloids. Har, har. So when I saw these tongue pink latex tops and pencil skirts at Phoebe English at the Touba London showroom my Carine Roitfeld version of myself was rolling in my brain. 

Latex clothes? Yes please! Now I'm not talking about fetish getups but the latex fabric itself. The sound, the feel, and the smell is delicious to all the senses. The showroom was featuring her A/W 14 collection so I was curious to see what she created for 2015 and its awesome!

I didn't go to the show, but saw the pictures on her website here. Sheer architectural layers with touches of latex and ruffles. A great combination of textures for the senses.

Other than fashion people lots of artists and exhibitionists have been traipsing around Somerset House. Paul Alamadi is among the many artists that have walking around LFW, but most certainly stood out from all the rest. His lego counter part Bwoy-wonder has been snapped up by everyone with his lego mask. Points of fashion: lego mask, blue and yellow.

JOÃO MELO COSTA: Hashtag minimalism with mind-f*ck tailoring.
Share this Reflektion:


"The f*k is with the construction?" I kept asking myself as each willowy beauty sashayed past me. Trying to figure out the patterns in my head (the skirt/pant in particular) made my head hurt and left me in a feverish ious curiosity, like after watching a Japanese psychological thriller. Portuguese designer Joao Melo Costa created mind boggling patterns and constructions that I still can't get my head around. Are they pants? Skirts? I will never know but still love it nonetheless. Streamlined silhouettes and lovely textural porn for any textile enthusiast to gag over. Taking the hashtag beyond mobile social media to the literal sense. Abstracting it into prints and gridlines that make up the whole collection. I liked it all. The pieces hit that sweet spot between completely wearable irreverence and that double-take 'fashion as art' level. Love love love it. ###
