Mark Fast once again showed his eye for detail

London Fashion Week: the bold and the colourful


Canadian designer Mark Fast shied away from the trend coming through with the other designers and stuck to neutral shades, showing off his signature style for detail and beautiful craftsmanship. Fast’s collection had strong elements of the African safari with carefully and loosely woven garments. Models adorned large bangles and cuffs up their arms and heavy tribal-like necklaces. His collection revealed great movement on the runway.

Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos are a talented design duo working under Pilotto’s name. The pair have combined backgrounds from Austria, Belgium, Italy and Peru. The style and cuts coming from the Pilotto collection were classic and well sculptured, giving the collection a certain sophistication. Their prints were repeated in different colours and shades throughout the collection. Every now and then a bold hint of floral would emerge to mix it up.

Another Canadian designer, Todd Lynn (above right), presented a very elegant and clean-cut collection at Fashion Week. Being very well regarded for his tailoring, Lynn did not let the show down and models came down the runway in sleek and beautifully flowing garments. Not a hint of pattern in sight, the colour palette was very smooth, with soft tones and texture created using the fabrics.

Finally, Alistair Carr is the designer for Pringle of Scotland. Carr’s designs are very modern. His collection this year was very similar to the New Zealand style, resting between Karen Walker and Nom D. Carr’s garments featured bright geographic prints mixed with clean tailoring and a lot of layering. The collection was very elegant but adventurous, with the models sporting slightly roughed-up hairstyles and virtually bare accessories. •
