MARIOS SCHWAB – LFW

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

With LFW in full swing it seems only right to review one of my favourite shows so far. Marios Schwab’s S/S 2012 offering was at once empowering, striking and beautiful. His inspiration behind the collection was Chiaroscuro; the particular lighting effect that was used in the Film Noir genre to give a sharp contrast between light and dark. The Film Noir heroine was thus entertained in the show, as the models strutted down the catwalk in an array of structured dresses and carefully crafted silhouettes.

Lattice panelled dresses in black, white and pastels embraced a modern aesthetic. These cutwork dresses were followed by black gauze layered over white, pale red and cornflower blue-playing on shadows and shimmer. To finish, a crystal encrusted bodice, sparkling from under a voluminous translucent plastic gown and then under sheer black chiffon wowed the audience. The Swarovski crystals catching the light under the darkened fabrics particularly alluded to the Chiaroscuro effect.

A collection that was true to the designer’s aesthetic- dresses engineered to complement and enhance the female form, many pieces were instantly wearable. Personal favourites included the peach lattice work dress with high neckline, the netting and bejewelled maxi dress and of course the sheer chiffon gown over the enchanting crystallised bodice.

The Story of the Elusive Pneumonia White

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

By Emma Wills

With the internet now inundated with fashion bloggers, finding a blog that stands out from the rest is quite hard to come by. Pneumonia white captivated me from the first click, the images and words creating a modern fairy tale that is in equal parts intriguing and morbid. Anya, the creator, is vague and mysterious. Her hazy and ethereal images capture a pale, elfish girl with an impeccable dress sense-yet reveal little more. Her eyes are always hidden.

She writes in fragments, so we may get glimpses of her life but never the full picture; like looking through a kaleidoscope. We know she lives in Hollywood, yet it is not as we think. For Anya experiences a secret Hollywood, where loneliness prevails and self-medication comes in the form of newly packaged shoes and opulent designer dresses. The people in her life weave shades of grey through the tapestry. Pneumonia black, her best friend, is persuasive and impulsive. Black is personified in pictures yet remains elusive enough to perhaps be a mere alter ego of White. It is a confusing, addictive and sometimes frustrating read-but should be visited to see the wonderful pictures alone.

After a mere two months, the Pneumonia White blog is now notorious in the blogosphere. Criticised by some for being a huge PR stunt as part of a bigger blogging network and praised by others as a riveting read with inspiring photography-only one thing is for sure. We may never know who Pneumonia White really is.
