One for the boys

I am ashamed to say I have neglected the boys. Rather foolish wouldn't you say? Especially given there was a whole day dedicated to the men at the end of fashion week. I did do a whole section on the favoured mans shoe (brogue), but i now feel I must push the clothing forward too.

Sibling had a presentation in the Portico Rooms at Somerset House. Each of the mannequins dressed in the variations of the knitwear pieces from C5, as well as every person working there. Cozette, Joe and Sid worked the look well, modeling the collaborations of Sibling with artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster. The glow factor of the lettering is sure to shock some as it will light up  gloriously in the flash when photographed. (all due to the reflective tape), so no shy retiring types please!

PS the Sibling team and I, well plus my team, have a healthy rivalry at the local pub quiz, which is back on soon. So let the games begin!

At the end of a very long Fashion week, it was Ozwald Boateng who was going to close with a spectacular show to celebrate his 25 years in the tailoring business. Spectacular it was. Leicester Square thought Ozwald Boateng was another film premier. The crowds, queues and security were immense. After a long wait to be inside we were seated and pleasantly greeted with a little drink, mini Moet, in our cup holder. (Cineworld - take note!)

After the solo guitarist had recited for well over 40minutes during the seating, a short documentary style film was played. Showing the inspiration and contributions to Boateng's career to date.

Then came the show. Over 100 models showing his AW10 collection and the newer SS11 pieces, including a venture towards the less formal. On the Oswald site the whole show can be watched.

Fast and slick paced, the tailoring was snappy and concise.

A resounding standing ovation greeted him on his finale, and along side him was his extremely proud father, his greatest inspiration. A moment I am sure both will be remembering for a very long time to come.
