Words Spindle

In the hustle and bustle of London Fashion week stepping into Teatum Jones’s debut LFW presentation entitled ‘Sometimes it snows in April,’ was like stepping into a bye gone era.

Upon the greeting of a Martini, models waltzed amongst a raised platform, their dresses dancing to the echoing lounge music as they gazed through windows and reclined in plush chairs. It brought to mind the days of the salon, the Model as the perfect yet desperate housewife.

With sugary pastel fabrics in silk crepe de chine and sheer organza it emphasised the ideal of this idyllic yet artificial woman, a bird in a gilded cage.

Juxtaposing the feminine cloud printed gowns was a series of what can only be described as ‘hybrid’ dresses. Part patriarchal suit jacket, part fluid dress, almost as if the angel on pedestal had nonchalantly taken off her husband’s coat allowing it to drape upon her one frail shoulder.

It was an antidote to what can be an aggressive catwalk show, proving that fashion can have a wonderful impact without the ringing of loud music left in your ears, but with a great taste of Martini on your lips and beauty in your eyes.
