London Fashion Week: Thomas Tait Spring/Summer 15

London Fashion Week: Thomas Tait Spring/Summer 15

A warm welcome


Yesterday, Thomas Tate – the winner of the inaugural LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize – presented his first ready-to-wear collection in London, stealing the spotlight with bright colors, exaggerated silhouettes and a fresh, new take on fashion

Held in an industrial-style building on the Strand, the Canadian-born Thomas Tait presented his first looks to the fashion industry, unveiling an edgy and youthful show which took its cues from the works of installation artist Georges Rousse. The colourful lineup was filled with one-sleeve looks and delivered silhouettes that were both wearable and challenging.

Among the more artistically inclined looks were asymmetric leather checkerboard skirts, and dresses  inspired by Rousse's earlier works  sheer pleated fabric which was used in the form of long-sleeved tops and long jackets were also offered. And among the more commercial offerings, were double-faced silk-satin trousers and two-toned bulky leather coats.

Additionally, the LVMH star played on the theme of the construction, as models wore wire choker necklaces and neon-colour glasses.
