VIDEO: Luis De Javier, The Most Tantalisingly Provocative Show Of Fashion Week
London Fashion Week debut, titled El Invitado, solidifies the notion that corsets are back – and with a vengeance. Tucked away in the labyrinth of Somerset House, de Javier’s Autumn/Winter collection was a skin-baring, tantalisingly provocative fusion of fashion, sex and performance. Silver horned corsets and aggressively sculpted garments stomped down the runway, g-string clad models walked half barefoot, the other heel dangling from their hands, like memories of an early morning walk of shame not many of us would like to admit to.
OVERTURE: In the initial hush as the lights dimmed out, two performers stalked their way through the space. A performance ensued, one of strength, beauty and tension between the two lovers, fighting against the unknown power that was threatening to push them apart. With flips and spins close enough to wipe out half of the front row, it ended in a fit of passion, rolling out the blood red carpet as the first model appeared.
VENUE: FROW included CHARLES JEFFREY and a myriad of drag queens, the towering heels and killer looks culminating in a queer spectacular with more yaaases and finger clicks than Somerset House has ever seen. With family and friends also joining, it was a touching debut for the young Spanish designer and recent Westminster graduate.
EXTRA: Charlie Le Mindu, the hair artist behind that bare-chested look during ART SCHOOL’S menswear show last month, collaborated with de Javier in perfecting the fantastical hair creations from flame-red ponytails to jet black bouffants. If the crop-top, kitten heel and cheek-baring lewks weren’t enough to spark your attention, le Mindu’s hair styling was the cherry on top of the ever so sweet and sexy cake.
