Be prepared for literally anything with this trousers/shorts/shorter shorts kit. I bet Kanye West wears these when he’s on his holidays in Benidorm
So what can we expect to see on prudent followers of fashion this winter? Tits and arses, that’s what. At least it will be if saucy seamstress Pam Hog gets her drafty way. Those outfits may look a bit chilly but the money saved on material can be spent on Lemsip and hot water bottles when the cold weather really kicks in. And there’s no denying that they look brilliant. But if your tastes are a bit more conservative you could always wrap up in a lovely outfit by Giles Deacon. A triumph.
Of course LFW has traditionally been concerned with women’s fashion, so it was refreshing to see designers designing designer clothes for men at this autumn’s event. One such designer whose designs were showcased is Carri Munden, otherwise known as Cassette Playa. Cassette Playa has designed for rock greats such as N.I.A. Nicki Minaj and 2NE1, so she must be good. “Why have I not heard of this Cassette Player before?” I hear you wheeze. Because you are ingnarami what are not down wiv the kids, innit. And it’s Playa not Player. Let’s find out a bit more about this artist, shall we?
TRADEMARK PIECE: “The digital print silk oversized T-shirt.”
IDEAL CLIENTS: “A warrior and/or powerbabe.”
THE COLLECTION: “Spring/summer 2013 is based on a four week residency I am doing at the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt - the museum has an amazing anthropology collection from which I have selected pieces on the themes of coming-of-age rituals, body adornment and scarification.”
I think that tells you all you need to know. And I think you’ll agree that a designer who is not influenced by coming of age rituals and scarification cannot really call themselves a designer at all. If Cassette Playa’s spring/summer 2013 collection is anything like their spring/summer 2012 collection we may all have the chance to look like this:
But obviously with a bit more scarification.
