Disco bobbles

Let us celebrate the release of Roisin Murphy’s new album by admiring some of her most appealingly edgy looks from over the years. The powerhouse of glacial disco appeared on Sunday Brunch this weekend to promote her album in a joyously kitsch dress and a vicious necklace, with which I quickly became mesmerised. Unfortunately, you cannot see the necklace in the photo of this appearance but I was struck enough for this to be the start of a quest to find its provenance. It also lead me to look back over Roisin’s sartorial archive and, boy, did it not disappoint. The problem was narrowing it down to only the 26 pictures I’ve included here.

London Fashion Week Round-up

Here’s the best of London Fashion Week’s autumn/winter 2015 looks.

 

As usual, Christopher Kane produced the most interesting looks with an expansive collection of electric iridescents. Stand outs are the uncompromising colours of the blue and purple dresses, and the whimsy of the lacy black and white number.

 

Jonathan Saunders went for full-on 70s revival with loud prints and chunky sunnies.

 

Topshop Unique also went for a 70s feel – although less garishly so – with fur coats and Japanese inspired prints.

 

Giles featured unabashed theatricality and kingfishers.

Gareth Pugh’s collection was scary mash-up of influences – Boudicca and England football fans.

Silbling
