#1490 Retro futurism at Adrian Hailwood

Photos: Katherine Lowe

Hailwood was a mashup of so many retro looks, it was hard to take it all in at once. There were the Canadian tuxedos, the 70s wide leg pinstriped jeans paired with western shirts, the mustard tights and shaggy jackets. Stripy merino tees were cut and sewn together so that the lines went all over the place and polka dots were served up multicoloured. Adrian Hailwood has long been a master of graphic prints, and his pamplemousse (grapefruit) printed grey marle crewneck sweater was a winner. Giant black circles were fixed onto the front of his finale dress, closing a collection with no discernible theme, but plenty of visual stimulation – see below for multicoloured-striped tights and more.

Was a little disappointed to see such likeness between his green coat and the French Connection Mayhem Coat (the bow can be untied and worn around the waist.........) http://www.catwalkqueen.tv/2008/02/get_the_proenza.html
