So my friend, Kinga Kurek, recently managed to get me into this rather edgy little event nuzzled inside the infamous King's Road the other day. In preparation for London Fashion Week, the brand Sade English, gave a batch of au courant men and women the chance to take a look at their latest collection. The designer is known for her use of leather, hence for my outfit to attend the event, I decided that what better opportunity to go a bit leather crazy.
The designs of Sade English feature predominantly very dynamic aesthetics, with drastic lines cutting across the garments, denting the silhouette of the wearer. This unstructured approach to clothing imbues a certain vagueness, you honestly can't tell if the piece is men's or women's. I frigging love that. This is what attracted me to wearing the pices above, they mimic the unconventional spirit of Sade English. The leather paneling of the tee cuts into the torso, whereas the leather paneling on the suede trousers (note to self, do not wear suede leather trousers in 20 degree heat on the horrors of the Central Line) lengthens the legs.
Technology and fashion are becoming intertwined with each other, with the phrase 'wearable tech' being sprinkled all over our day to day lives. Just look at the Apple Watch, for example, it's beautifully designed with that touch of elegance that rivals traditional watches. I decided to use these headphones as an accessory, using the orange cord and pairing it with my orange socks for an urban look. The palette reminded me of my favourite TV show Orange Is The New Black. It's a Netflix original and if you haven't watched any of the two series yet you're seriously missing out!
Shoes: Doc Marten.
