A collection heavy with metaphor, Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman presented ‘a wardrobe for today’s global modern woman.’ The collection journeyed through opposites, representing both mini and maxi, structured and flowing, and leather with silk pieces.
For western tribes, scarring enhances social prestige and is a sign of sensual attractiveness. Fyodor Golan experimented with manipulated leather, giving the impression of animalistic scars. Their conceptual approach led to feathered pieces lining bra cups and dress seams and buckled straps across the back and arms.
The colour palette was focused around earthy blacks and browns, offset with emerald green drainpipe trousers, a radiant blue and black felt slit dress and a lilac hooded cape.
Stand out pieces included a ruched cream maxi dress, elongating the silhouette, and a layered, pleated mini dress with cut out detail. A personal favourite was the designers’ second look, a dramatic backless navy dress. The flurry of tweets and camera shutters during the show proved everyone is now a fan of Fyodor Golan’s LFW premier.
