Candice Cuoco went hell for leather with her SS15 collection, featuring black lingerie with biker-boot hardware and chain detailing, metallic petrol-blue evening wear and panelled monochrome gowns, all realised in slick leather. The San Franciscan takes notions of dark beauty from her childhood experiences of biker life, especially evidenced by Hell’s Angels seated front row – a Fashion Scout first.

Black leather lingerie, complete with suspender belt, buckled leg harness and thong, is certainly not for shy and retiring types. Chain detailing and gunmetal studs adorned bra tops and body harnesses, while sequinned butterfly headpieces added embellishment to sleek pencil skirts and dresses. As expected, black featured prominently in Ccuoco’s collection, followed closely by pristine white or deepest navy. Rust, bronze and copper also feature in patchwork-effect floor length gowns, paired with Cuoco branded belts in silver hardware. Bustier style designs in silver are a collection highlight, a perfect pick for edgy evening wear.

Ccuoco favoured a minimal approach in terms of silhouette, choosing instead to show her craftsmanship through simple yet sophisticated seaming and lace-up ribbon corsetry. Deep V-necks are softly folded, with a strong focus on shoulders. Headpieces were stunning, an iced black rose and spike crown particularly stands out. The devil is clearly in the detail for Ccuoco.
