I have never been able to go and see a runway show by SIBLING, so when LG sent through my ticket you can imagine how over the over the moon I was. Working again with LG for another season I was going to be reporting on three of the hottest designers’ collections.
SIBLING hits the runway it is common knowledge that the pieces will have an
element of fun about them. After such an innovative assortment from the
Men’s Collection, the bar had been raised for the women’s range. Everyone
was eagerly awaiting the models to grace the catwalk to see what the three
talented designers had concocted for AW14.
Creating a fashionable work of art is second nature to
designers Sid Bryan, Cozette McCreery and Joe Bates, with their latest
offerings certainly providing the perfect balance of innovation and charm.
Wide brimmed floppy hats, floor length pieces,
roll necks and cobwebbed knitwear all dominated the catwalk. A firm favourite
being crocheted fringes and funky edged articles all created a mysterious
witchcraft inspired ambiance. Even though this collection was enigmatic
it implied a rebellious grunge theme, but splashed with beautiful colours in
forest green, warming berry and dark denim, making each look a perfect balance
between artistic and fashionable.
A lot of attention was drawn to model Phoebe Collings-James,
who unfortunately got her heel caught in her white cobwebbed hemmed floor
length dress; bravely she abandoned her shoes and continued to trot along the
catwalk; however the final model in a very similar dress trooped on through with
her heels intact.
Despite the stray shoes in the middle of the catwalk the show pushed on to
display more vibrant shades of seventies boho, giving confirmation that SIBLING
had really got their combination of themes and knitted creations spot on.
Do you think floppy hats are the way forward for AW14?
