JULIAN J. SMITH
Energetic music set the perfect mood for the mixture of Central American native/Scandinavian “Ice Princess” which encapsulated Julian J. Smith’s AW10 collection this year at LFW. Although unusual, the combination was perfectly harmonic as Smith’s models strutted the runway. Decked out in pixelateddiamond prints with a traditional Native American color story (think turquoise, mustard and petal pink combined with pops of black), each look was shown with fringed booties, and a futuristic-looking plastic headband. Shiny, black, silver, and acidy-green on puff-sleeved frocks and graphic splatter prints on blocked dress panels generated a sort of “robotic” look, rounding out the collection’s point of view.
