Tagged as: Julian Zigerli. Joseph Turvey. To Be frank. Bodybound. Ones To Watch. Menswear. AW12/13. fashion. Exciting. LFW. Vauxhall Fashion Scout.

This week saw the end of LFW and it was as busy and packed as always, however this year everything felt slightly cheap (I suppose the recession even hits fashion eventually). I went to the ever interesting Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Menswear Ones to Watch show and it was an extremely mixed bag. I left feeling slightly deflated and extremely disheartened by what I saw. 
Bodybound was a complete and utter disaster, creating unflattering silhouettes in garish colours and material made for a flat show (seriously transparent plastic clothing is two seasons ago Jil Sander and Burberry). To Be Frank was also a show that utilised a mixture of bland uninspiring materials and shockingly terrible shapes. I am all for distorted silhouettes but this just went to far and merely appeared ill-fitting.  Now Joseph Turvey was a truly interesting show with a thumping Beyoncé soundtrack and some interesting pieces. The pieces that really grabbed my attention were the sheer knits. They are absolutely amazing and I can see them being requested but just about everyone, so delicate and bright they really looked amazing (although I think they would work better with different styling and a colour change). Sheer Knits are definitely a must however; a random face plastered on everything is not! I do not know what was the inspiration for illustrations on clothing. I will pass on these items; overall Joseph Turvey was adequate with glimmers of star potential.
Finally to infinity and beyond! Julian Zigerli was amazing. Now this I really enjoyed it had such harmony, the past showings seemed fragmented and premature. As a major sucker of knits and outerwear I fell for such simple and utilitarian clothing. Vest with built in bags so simple and clean. The array of fabric patterns was dully muted yet bold enough to demand a second glance. Ultimately it was an amazing show and I really do believe Julian Zigerli has a bright future ahead of him, I think he has already established what his brand is and represents and is driving his creative vision forward full force. Well done I say.
