LFW - Joanne Hynes & Helen Steele

LFW - Joanne Hynes & Helen Steele

This was probably my biggest (pleasant) surprise of fashion week. I went in not sure what to expect, but came out impressed with the collection especially its craftsmanship and bejewelled detailing. This season saw a collaboration between Joanne Hynes and artist Helen Steele.

The collection featured strong references to nature with twigs and branches in the model's hair and natural fabrics like recycled wool, jute and tweed. The overall effect was far from sombre though with almost psychedelic prints and patterns coming through - there was also a touch of pure luxe with jewels, heavy red fabrics and metallics like my personal favourite, the gold leather skirt. Plus, check out those killer platforms!

Definitely worth keeping an eye on, view some of my pics below...
