Mon 15th June: LCMSS16 - Wales Bonner "Malik" at Fashion East

Wales Bonner was the show I was most looking forward to and it was indeed an absolute winner.  Devised in the galleries of The ICA the choreographed presentation fitted perfectly with artifact props placed to turn the familiar rooms into a new imaginary location.  The collection "Malik" has built on last season's debut at Fashion East, extending to a larger production to show more looks hinged together with her crystallised styling.  On what first glass appears to be a skullcap is actually crafted more like loose jewellery for the crown with links of shells and Swarovskis.  "A Prince found in cowrie skullcap and rare gemstone" explains her press release which also outlines another printed collaboration with Ditto Press & Jamie Reid.  Head over to her site to see more from all of this all-encompassing and thorough vision.
