LOUISE GRAY | FALL / WINTER 2012
Towering Mohicans, bright pink contouring blusher and trashy drag queen eye make-up formed the basis of a catwalk that shot you back in time. The exuberant designs associated with Gray were ever-present; psychedelic prints stood boldly against geometric patterns in tailored shifts or layered under think woollen knits.
The palette was vast, from fushia pink with orange to aquamarine and silver sequins. Maroon tweed jackets sat boldly on top of tribal print t-shirts and matching a-line skirts, with lime and yellow detailing, finished with fluorescent yellow knee-high boots. Coats were classic in shape and made from wool and textured leather layered over barely-there dresses and cropped sheer blouses.
The collection as a whole was more polished and offered a more commercial look than her usual. The plethora of colours somehow managed to work together creating a raw collection reminiscent of the 1980s.
