Romeo Pires

john cena

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.
