Tuesday 17th September: Maiko Takeda at Somerset House LFW SS14
Maiko Takeda's graduate collection 'Atmospheric Re-entry' began with wondering what it would be like to wear a cloud. Graduating in June this year, Takeda's unusual millinery has received huge interest, already having been worn by Bjork during her Biophilia tour.
Her pieces feel very natural, the sensitivity to their surrounding and tactility making them very pleasing to see and feel. They create a rippling atmospheric layer around the body as the quills respond to their surroundings and the movement of the wearer. Strangely beautiful there is a definite essence of futurism in this collection.
Three of Tekada's pieces are on display at the Somerset House Exhibition for LFW SS14. We really enjoyed seeing them in person and finding out a little more about their origins.
This has been another blog takeover from Ciara and Nicci from LFW.
