For Autumn/Winter Hedi Slimane did what he does best: Sixties chic get-ups with a rock and roll vibe...
Under an arc of mechanical gold plinths Hedi Slimane presented his AW14 line, which was inspired by American artist John Baldessari but could easily have doubled as an homage to London's Swinging Sixties. With musicians Alex Turner and Miles Kane on the front row, the collection was packed with signature Slimane pieces but reinvented for the new season: shrunken white shirts with dickie ties, pleated mini-kilts with sequined tartan, patent go-go boots and a myriad of little shift dresses - modelled by the likes of Sam Rollinson and Edie Sedgwick, it was the perfect tribute to rock chic. Outerwear was particularly strong, with streamlined crombies in thick wool, plaid capes, cropped leather jackets, and, of course, a touch of leopard print on shorn furs, all commanding attention. Sequined shift dresses and glittery Mary Janes in silver and red had the audience ready to party.
Who we saw: Anja Rubik.
What she wore: An unbelted, camel-coloured, suede trench coat that was nonchalantly rolled up at the sleeves.
In three words: Swinging Sixties Revival.
