London Fashion Week: Thomas Tait Spring/Summer 15
A warm welcome
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.
