The Perfect Kiss

Mad About The Boy

07.01.2016 | Fashion | BY:

You don’t have to have Instagrammed Corrine Day’s iconic Kate Moss shoot for The Face to know that youth culture has shimmied around fashion’s dance-floor since time began, throwing shapes and intoxicating every wisened creative as it went. Whilst Joan Didion for Celine may have piqued an interest for a mature, savvy model, really it’s the arresting, intangible power of youth that continues to enthrall the industry. From Friday, London College of Fashion will celebrate this preoccupation in an all-star exhibition Mad About The Boy at the Fashion Space Gallery.

With a timely opening on the first day of London Collections: Men, Mad About The Boy promises to cast a discerning spotlight on the relationship between fashion and beautiful males. If the subject alone didn’t have you intrigued, the fact that it’s curated by SHOWstudio’s Lou Stoppard definitely will.

Thanks to contributions from game-changing designers and creatives such as Raf Simons, J W Anderson, Nick Knight, Meadham Kirchhoff and Larry Clark, the exhibition is set to continue last year’s legacy of mixing fashion and art (did you already forget about McQueen mania?), to great effect. Attendees can expect a sensory experience thanks to audio recordings of designers and photographers discussing their memories alongside editorials, films and select looks from seminal collections.

You’d be mad not to visit.

Open 11th January – 2nd April.

Meadham Kirchhoff at the V&A

09.12.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

Meadham Kirchhoff presented a retrospective catwalk last week in London with the V&A’s Fashion in Motion initiative. The four catwalk shows featured highlights of the brand’s womenswear collections to date.

Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff said; ‘We were very pleased to be involved with the V&A’s Fashion in Motion series. When approaching every collection or garment we secretly hope to make something worthy of being seen in a museum, so for us it is an honour to present a show comprised of hand-picked pieces from our favourite collections.’

Meadham Kirchhoff Spring Summer 2014

19.09.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

On Tuesday the super duo Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff behind the brand Meadham Kirchhoff’showed a theatrical experience through their Spring Summer 2014 collection.

It was an extraordinary collection with materials such as silk, lace and satin in white, black, red and gold.
A beautiful fairytale vibe mixed with a slightly darker vampire touch appeared when the models walked down the catwalk with bright orange hair, reminding one of a modern Pippi Longstocking, whilst ghostly sounds pumped out the speakers.

We saw baby doll dresses, punkish takes on the classic Chanel suit and hand embroided slipdresses.

Twin’s Trinity Ellis went backstage to snap some photos.

Protege Programme

17.02.2012 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

With a week’s worth of womenswear and menswear shows kicking off today, a new crop of fresh design talents will be making their London Fashion Week mark.

For this season, expect to see the collections of David Koma, Holly Fulton, J.JS Lee, J.W. Anderson, Michael van der Ham and Simone Rocha on the runway, as well as Christopher Raeburn, Thomas Tait, Nasir Mazhar, Sister by Sibling, Huishan Zhang, James Long, Lucas Nascimento, Tim Soar and Palmer//Harding presenting their unique designs in installations and exhibitions.

Helping them flourish in the fashion capital is the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN initiative, founded in 1993 and sponsored by Topshop. The scheme offers young creatives a platform to showcase their designs at Somerset House, as well as offering financial and business support.

With past recipients including Alexander McQueen, Matthew Williamson, Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou and Meadham Kirchhoff, the future is looking more than bright for this next generation of fashion talent. After all, there’s nothing like a new kid on the block to shake things up.
