For a fresh and and eclectic take on autumn/winter trends we had to look no further then L’Oréal Paris Runway 03 presented by creative director David Bonney, the young, fresh, contemporary and cool of designers such as LIFEwithBIRD, YB J’aime by Yeojin Bae, Ginger & Smart Tigerlily, ksubi, Alice McCall and Michael Lo Sordo.
Opening with vast red desert plains the mood for the eclectic cool began with Ginger & Smart’s Geometric prints and warm coral shades. Transitioning to frolicking flamingoes on Alice McCall’s deco inspired collection followed by the bohemian nomad looks unmistakably Tigerlily. Showing for the first time at LMFF was YB J’Aime by Yeojin Bae who’s collection took us for a walk through the designers strong tailoring sensibility and Michael Lo Sordo with moody lightning to kick off the first strong look of a turquoise coat and leather sleeves. Ksubi’s nod to religious iconography was somewhat appropriate to the current media on the Catholic Church.
The models were rebellious with wet look waves and piercing turquoise eyes, flirty and cool for this independent women. The grand finale of LIFEwithBIRD focused strongly on their vibrant print that is vastly becoming one of the hottest prints this season. Sophisticated and simple, this runway was for a modern uptown girl.
