Futuristic-tribal Warrior Women at Marios Schwab
(pics from www.skyliving.sky.com)
Schwab went full throttle with his hoard of futuristic-tribal warrior women resplendent in pleats a-plenty and delicately swishing all over fringing. The grace of their domineering march was matched only by the glistening of crystal detailing and adornments and the gentle wave of the supple accordion-like leather skirting. The pre-eminence of craft and peerless construction shone through with crystal harnesses, decorative bodices/ breast pates, lace, broderie and intricate form fitting chiffon.
We marvelled more at ingenious pleating, fringed and fan-like peplums, a quasi molecular design embroidery and an array of to the knee gladiator-style sandals which Calisi from GOT (Game of Thrones) would love to slide into. A haunting and evocative soundtrack, which include Morricone’s Once upon a time in the West matched the intensity of sleek hair and mesmerizing eyes.
The showed played out to a packed house which included true legends in their own right Bobby Gillespie and Anna del Russo looking dazzling in Tom Ford, topped off in her own idiosyncratic style with an elaborate headpiece. The Greco Austrian designer showed himself to be a true modern day master at adorning the body in a powerful yet seductive way.
