Style & Then Some

Antoni and Alison SS13 at London Fashion Week | Childish Chic

From the get go it was obvious Brit design duo Antoni and Alison were keen to get everyone in a celebratory mood with their SS13 collection – note the sharply dressed marching band perched on the catwalk – and rightly so. This season marks their twenty-fifth year in the fashion industry so who better to open London Fashion Week yesterday?

During the opening we heard from the designers themselves, talking in an enthusiastic voiceover about their desire to constantly reinvent and create something new with a colour palette consisting of, well, anything goes. In their own words: ‘We used every colour we own.’ This SS13 offering embodies that fun British attitude which is often discarded in favour of a sterner more serious stereotype. And the range has been a long time coming – only now has the technology become available for them to carry out the prints they wanted to achieve.

Entitled New Work, the show featured a series of 38 dresses, all slightly varied in style and emblazoned with everything from print clashes, paint splashes (rhyme unintended) distorted florals, youthful collages and the staple Antoni and Alison childlike scribbles. New Work epitomises fun but wearable fashion with a somewhat controlled madness. The wacky prints were balanced out by their simple silhouettes which skimmed the model’s figures in an ever so flattering manner. It’s clear to see their creations – while still extremely original in their design – could be worn in many different ways and easily tailored to individual styles.

We can always count on Antoni and Alison to remind us that you can go completely crazy with your fashion choices yet remain practical. Long may it continue so here’s to another 25 years.
