Victoria House, London Fashion Week.
It’s the kind of party where they serve drinks you’ve never heard of before. That skinny DJ in the back with the cashmere jumper happens to be really good. And the backdrop, through the windows on both sides, London sparkles brighter than that glass of champagne that’s just been topped up in your hand. The new Antipodium AW14 collection reminds me of some swanky night, but like a Tuesday night, when things are a bit more chill, not so fussy. Playing on the schoolgirl theme that’s become a staple this season, I see Antipodium taking a less obvious approach, and instead of reimagining it, using specific elements to enhance the looks as opposed to being overtly influenced by them. I almost wish there was a bit more colour here, but for autumn/winter, one can’t really complain.
