London Fashion Week Fall 2017, the Inspirations
Many designers have also already shared little sneak peeks of their collections, revealing the main sources of inspiration behind their staples.
“The inspiration is very personal to me: Traditional Georgian costume. We explored elements of this historical clothing using different techniques, textures and embellishments,” David Koma told WWD.
“With rich fabrications and playful twists, the fall 2017 collection delves into the subconscious – complete with insects, lips, eyeballs and all that is bizarre and beautiful,” revealed Temperley London.
“The starting point was the idea of masquerade. From Saul Seinberg and Inge Morath’s Masquerade project, to Joan Riviere’s concept of womanliness as masquerade, to the masks and artifice of Fellini’s circuses and clowns,” continued Isa Arfen.
Well, under these premises we definitely cannot wait to see what this LFW has in store for us!
