Offsite Runway 1 at Penthouse Mouse

Taking on the literal inspiration from Ziggy Stardust at Penthouse Mouse’s LMFF offsite runway 1, Alexi Freeman‘s A/W collection was an uber-cool mix of electric sequins in midnight blues, deep blacks and illuminating silvers matched with bold, daring zig-zag prints. Glamorous and neo-80’s, Freeman’s standout piece was undoubtedly the black sequined Stardust trench, a futuristic twist on a classic favourite.

Drawing inspiration from Hermes’ equestrian styling, Jolet’s models paraded down the runway with flat-brimmed hats and classic silhouettes in a neutral palette of blacks, greys, whites and misty blues, with on-trend feminine pleats, mid-calf skirts and tailored collared shirts making an appearance. Chic and alluring, dresses were given a modern twist, draped shoulders were ever-present and a stunning winter landscape design was selected as the blueprint for the seasonal collection.

With pops of bright orange in the form of arm candy paired up with block coloured bases, Leonard Street‘s collection was an eclectic hybrid of the psychedelic 60’s and the groovy 70’s. With eye-popping fuschia brights, lime greens and distinct floral patterns, Leonard Street’s A/W line brought back sweet, bohemian appeal in all its bell-sleeved glory.

Super-chic, Livia Arena’s edgy collection was not only sophisticated with its luxurious, tailored blazers and supreme cut-out dresses but also dangerously sexy with its daring peek-a-boo bow leggings and sheer numbers.

The epitomy of modern sophistication, Metias’ line of classic trenches, blazers and shirts were given a contemporary interpretation with surprising cut-outs, cascading detail, sheer fabrics and impeccable tailoring. They presented Burberry-chic with a hint of rebellion as leather made a dominating appearance.

The darkly imaginative One Fell Swoop presented a mesmerizing collection of beautiful, cutting-edge pieces in sultry monochromatic tones of grey, white and black. Finely detailed and distinctively avant-garde, shirt dresses were impressively refined with strapping detail and dresses softly draped with an air of femininity.
