Greeted with a glass of pomegranate, orange or peach fizz, Leutton Postle’s S/S 13 presentation, held in the decadent pink-lit upstairs of the Freemasons’ Hall was set to be a good one. A bright collection, sure to wake us up (if the Cava hadn’t already) designs came in quite possibly every colour under the sun and featured fun, geometric patterns. The addition of long tassel-fringing and beads conveyed an ethnicity, teamed with crochet, Lurex and oversized lapel collars, we were transported back to the Seventies. A thoroughly vibrant show, glittering platform sandals and oversized sunglasses were adorned with fuse bead creations (remember those plastic beads that you made patterns with, then ironed?) And the new must-have bag this season? A multi-coloured, metallic backpack topped off with that swinging fringe. Sheer wide-leg pants were coupled with miss-match patterned shirts, complete with extra large cuffs and collars. While cropped angular T-shirts sat atop wrap skirts finished with beads and tassels galore. Every piece was a feast for the peepers, which by the way were framed with a green slick of eyeliner just above each models’ eye-crease, their lips popping in a fuchsia hue.
