Show report: Vin + Omi AW16 Fashion Scout, London Fashion Week
There was great anticipation before the VIN + OMI show, falling as it did towards the end of the Fashion Scout schedule, right at the moment when everyone was getting a little clothes-blind and in need of a sartorial bitch slap. This is, of course exactly the label that you need at that juncture, when your feet are aching and you’ve got catwalk swivel neck strain. The AW16 collection was impossible to look away from – distracting the FROW with all kinds of crazy sexy cool, from the colour-scattered catwalk, to the vast array of textures, which meandered from latex to faux fur, spikes and leather, delivered in pop colours of every shade. The devil was in the detail too – focus in on the hands and clock the elaborate finger embellishment, zoom in on the faces and you would have spotted Jane Horrocks aka ‘Bubble from AbFab’ - for whom Vin + Omi created a wardrobe for the silver screen. It was, a delight.
