Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo? Why, at Vauxhall Fashion Scout of course, for the continuation of our love affair with the Anglo-Brazillian duo Nicholas Humphrey and Sergio Pires’ cult label Romeo Pires.
The mood was light and airy; the show opening with billowing white draped shirts complete with 2-d bows, as models strolled down the catwalk to the sound of raindrops. Influences ranged from a very modern, and sophisticated clown to the monochrome palette of the harlequin. The colour scheme soon changed, as black and white gave way to a watercolour spectrum of ochres, olive greens, ambers and saffrons.
Romeo Pires sent out a powerful statement; one of a powerful femininity softened with a subtle romanticism present in the floaty, oversized shirt dresses. Why, Romeo, art thou mad? Maybe a little, but we love you anyway.
