Teatum Jones SS13 Presentation:
One of my favourite shows this season was that of the amazing design duo Teatum Jones which was held at the prestigious Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane. The collection which was inspired by the Cold War, the concept of ‘Hero vs Villian’ and the space race was truly worthy of its beautiful location with the garments being fit for a first lady. One of my favourite pieces was a coat in mint blue with a frilled skirt at the back which would not have been out of place in Jackie Kennedy’s wardrobe during the 60’s. The collection also featured two beautiful printed fabrics, one made up of fluid paint strokes inspired by Jenny Saville as well as sculptural chrome detailing and the other was a sketchy print featuring blue china crockery, the White House, Kremlin, Big Ben, Yuri Gagarin and Winston Churchill.
What made the presentation so special as well as clothes was the atmosphere, this was created through the thought provoking music featuring extracts from politics, tv and film mixed in with the likes of Annie Lennox and Elton John. As well as this was the amazing stage created by Teatum + Teatum which was made up of a series of stark white columns based on a lit up dance floor which drew reference from the futuristic film Space Odyssey and the space race that raged on during the 60’s.
Witnessing this presentation really affirmed to me my desire to work in fashion and how it is an art form in itself and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for Teatum Jones. xoxo
