Anya Hindmarch

Just because she only does accessories doesn’t mean they’re just accessories. The Anya Hindmarch show is always highly sought after, and for good reason. The theme was Counter Culture – the catwalk a conveyor belt and the accessories becoming the contents of your supermarket trolley. The show notes explained it as “Seizing the moment to ‘get happy’.” And it felt very happy indeed… tote bags sported the grinning Frosties tiger, and the Kelloggs cockerel, there were Daz and Ariel washing powder box clutches, and Rich Tea packets slung across the body. But Hindmarch was spreading her wings this season – against a simple backdrop of white dresses were the prototype Hindmarch scarves: with bright smiley faces to cheer you through Autumn/Winter.

Tata Naka

Dizzying wallpaper and carpet may not be the most obvious source of inspiration, but Tata Naka manages to work it in to something of beauty. Paisley, floral and Ming vase-like patterns rioted across the Autumn/Winter collection. Much like Burberry Prorsum, Tata Naka did away with traditional AW’14 colours and instead enjoyed exploring palettes and patterns. Fitted blazers and bomber jackets over tea dresses and midi dresses in clashing prints, and a Fifties-style off the shoulder dress blended smoothly with the blue-and-white wallpaper. Want to dress like a Tata Naka woman? Contrast your prints and accessorise it with attitude.

Meadham Kirchhoff

It was a love affair at Meadham Kirchhoff yesterday (sorry – I couldn’t help myself). With the word “tralala” spelt in purple ribbon, and gleaming red hearts as a backdrop, the models were dressed in moon boots, chiffon, holographic jackets and veils. Blouses (black, lilac, pink) were covered by tiled coats with low-slung hems. By contrast, skirts were short, although the dresses were suitably demure for Meadham Kirchhoff. There was romance broken by rebellion (check out the multi-coloured striped moon boots and ragged frills along black dresses). Holographic fabric brought forth ideas of Sixties sci-fi, and the veils neither confirmed nor denied marriage or mourning, instead sweeping across the face and blending at the shoulder to create a coquettish shape to balance out the chunky boots and flared sleeves. Despite its conflicting messages, this was a beautifully cohesive collection from Meadham Kirchhoff, celebrating independence, confidence and fun.
