As part of our creative London Fashion Week collab, singer Etta Bond attended the Teatum Jones S/S16 show on our behalf with friends and fellow UK artists Delilah and Bonkaz in tow. We thought it would be exciting to hear about a fashion collection from a musician’s point of view, as a refreshing change from all the conventional cookie-cutter fashion editor reviews the Internet is flooded with each season. Here’s what Etta had to say about the latest styles from the contemporary womenswear label.
What were your overall impressions of the Teatum Jones show?
It was quite pleasant, but I can’t say I was left in awe.
What was your favourite look and why?
I loved the blazers and the pieces with strong collars.
Could you see yourself wearing anything from the collection?
You might catch me in a matching blazer and trousers combo.
Was there anything featured that you weren’t so keen on?
Lots of thin straps. They’re not for me, I feel too broad. But that’s just personal preference.
What kind of place do you think the clothes were designed for?
The pieces started off really soft and feminine with lots of flowing skirts and strappy tops, but got a lot stronger towards the end. I think these designs would be a comfortable approach to extravagance. I wouldn’t wear it to tescos though. Maybe to M&S…
Did you spot any celebs on the front row?
No one I recognised, but I don’t know a lot of celebrities like that.
What kind of music did they play?
They played some Major Lazer. I find it so hard to hear music and keep still and be sensible, but I think I held it together!
