London Fashion Week: Eley Kishimoto catwalk report

by cheree Published on 18 September 2009

One of the pleasures of Eley Kishimoto's shows is that they always inject colourful optimism into the hectic schedule and you emerge as if you have been submerged in a technicolour dream. The soundtrack seemed to be provided by an iPod shuffle and was a throbbing mix of electro beats.

Prints, as you would expect, are key here but this season more pieces have been teamed with plain colours - for example a floral and leaf print blue and white jacket was shown with a tangerine chiffon dress and there are contrasting prints juxtaposed.

Playfulness is also integral to Wakako and Mark's work this season. This is expressed in pinafore dresses, printed jumpsuits and a beautiful oversized shirt dress as well as classic crochet cardigans and patchwork. Tailored shorts and slouchy off-the-hip skirts contrast with the vibrant prints. Spots, stripes and gingham-style checks all appear. Swans are honoured in a cool black T-shirt as well as appearing on brooches.
