We were drawn into Hogg’s fantasy world; a theatrical spectacle that was once again one of the most talked about events of London Fashion Week. Models rocked body-con looks on the catwalk alongside technicolour faux fur and lustrous metallics; sexy pencil skirts were given the designer’s distinctive stamp in glossy black PVC. The Glasgow School of Art alumni gave the AW19 season candy-coloured erotica in a mélange of latex, leather, PVC corsetry, and (faux) fur.
AW19 delivered jaw-dropping creations with a nod to candy-coloured 80s nostalgia, with sheer catsuits embellished sparingly with strategically placed faux fur merkins, fetish-inspired PVC accents, and rock star studded leather on statement pieces.
A stunning frock in fire engine red came complete with an oversized collar and lashings of tulle and faux fur, and we saw everything from satin boiler suits to twinned models in day-glo colour-blocked suits, figure-hugging Bond-girl lycra, as well as buckles, chains, whips, and the occasional riding crop alongside intricately studded patent leather that wouldn’t be out of place in a Dominatrix’s working wardrobe.
The severity of a military-inspired coat was given an injection of the designer’s signature playfulness in Barbie pink, and we saw jumpsuits in a bold colour palette of candy-store hues, elevated patent pastels alongside statement monochromes, and of course, plenty of glorious fiery reds.
