Baartmans and Siegel AW16 LC:M

Baartmans and Siegel and its stamp of luxury is always something I look forward to. Especially at LCM, where its presentations always leave people talking.

Baartmans and Siegel and its stamp of luxury is always something I look forward to. Especially at LCM, where its presentations always leave people talking.

2015 saw a frenzy of seventies prints, shapes and tailoring. You'd think it'd be exhausted, but a new wave of the late seventies luxe has shone through LCM. Gucci and its new campaign is at the forefront with its faultless layering has only extenuated Baartmans and Siegel's camel piecing.

The difference is this time we can see a 2000s re-vamp with the use of Converse. Again, this could have been risky, as the Chino/white trainer look reigned 2010, but this collection worked very well. 

The combination of camel and thick fur brought a femininity and sophistication to looks. With this year's breakthrough of a gender mix, seen at Moschino and Charles Jeffrey too, it was so refreshing to see thick fur for menswear in bright shades of colours which means no more black. (Definitely something to shout about).

Regarding colours, camel and the use of dark yellows shone at the presentation. It wasn't just fur – we saw the reinterpretation of the notorious trench and parka, both calf length, both emphasising the mystery of the seventies shapes.

A tease of womenswear mirrored the menswear – girls wore oversize shaggy fur, with glimpses of two-piece suits. The shaping of which was a very masculine fit, which leaves you to your imagination, which again is a different take to tight tailoring for women.

With the tragic passing of icon David Bowie, all in all this collection was in a great ode to him and his beliefs – and this year promises to break the mould.
