Marios Schwab is known for unique pieces with a rock n’ roll edge, so I was surprised to see a lot of ladylike pieces for his Fall 2012 collection.
Much like Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2012 presentation, the hats took centre stage.
They were asymmetrically perched on top of the models’ heads, which is probably why he called the Marios Schwab woman a ‘voyeur’ as she’s obscured and not fully in view.
Wearable chic separates and streamlined dresses moved on to more daring looks with revealing laser-cut floral details – no doubt lined before they hit the red carpet – sexy leather trenches, low-cut gowns and nude embellished gowns with a coloured chiffon overlay.
With Swarovski Elements adorning the final look, I’m hoping it has done enough to be Oscar bound.
Front Row: Alexa Chung and Leigh Lezark
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Michelle Williams, Amanda Seyfried, Kristen Stewart, Alexa Chung, Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Keira Knightley, Andrea Riseborough and Felicity Jones
Marios Schwab is just one of many talented designers due to launch at the British Designers Collective boutique which will open soon at Bicester Village.
