LFW: Billie Jacobina AW17 Show Report
Billie Jacobina is a colour queen – a bold fashion force with collections that have a creative, joyful feel. Her AW17 presentation was indulgent and fun, from the towering balloon headpiece, to the fluffy heart clutch pillow and the giant mermaid earrings, all set against a haze of pink. Roller-accessorised hair, pastels and sequins created a sleepover-meets-Club-Tropicana-meets-Laduree vibe. Textures were there in abundance – a delicate wide fishnet, preppy pleats, shaded sheers, faux faur – and the prints were vibrant. Billie uses traditional techniques as the basis for her designs, creating a foundation of quality craftsmanship on which to hang a distinctive aesthetic, designed to delight.
