COLLECTION| Ekaterina Kukhareva FEB'13
Autumn/ Winter Ekaterina Kukhareva transported spectators to a world of high octane, retro 'Hallucinogenic Housewife’ glamour; inspired by the lives of coffee-morning girls, bored of straight-up caffeine and their 'tennis coach' dreams. Kukhareva shunned convention, replacing cookie-cutter "Moms" with Martini-fuelled fantasy-driven noons, and canapés served on Byzantine and Ottoman dishes.
The collection's lucid pink, violet and acid green viscose wool pieces showcased Ekaterina's textile-training, as well as the curvature of the female form. The combination of form fitting leotards, plunging necklines and striking lurex-knit floor length dresses created the most desirable saunter and silhouette on the runway.
The 50’s inspiration didn't cease there; headpieces and jewellery created by Lara Jensen came in the shape of extravagant bejeweled hair rollers and vibrant oversized jewel encrusted earrings which perfectly completed the lucid fantasy.
