LFW | AW14 | Eudon Choi

Mock paparazzi flashes lit up the BFC tent as recorded Beatle fan screams echoed through the space. The show notes expressed that for AW14 Eudon Choi sieved through the band's archives from the Sixties, using elements of their trendiest groupies for inspiration. Show notes aside, the reality is that the looks which he showed couldn't have been further away from the Sixties.

Tailored outerwear featured larger than life lapels, complimented with double breasting. Aside from a couple of silk dresses that were nipped in at the waist, silhouettes skipped the line of the body entirely. Simple but sharp two piece suits were accompanied by funnel-neck shirts, paying homage to the everyday, yet powerful, working woman.

Elements of Choi's previous collections weren't entirely disregarded; patchwork pieces in orange, red and black filtered through during the middle of his AW14 offering. However, it was the last few looks where Choi really made his mark. Omitting colour and pattern for snow white, fluid pieces embroidered with modest embellishment, Choi hinted at a new, and very intriguing, direction for the future.

Sometimes snow white can be the strongest colour of all!
