[London] Pam Hogg AW 2012

The Pam Hogg show was by far one of if not the biggest dates on the Vauxhall calender, with Janice Dickinson, Alexandra Burke and Tallulah Adeyemi all in attendance; rumor has it that although Kitty Brucknell was in the building, having been to he House of Evolution showcase, she was declined entry to the show. It was running extremely late and packed to the rafters. Pam Hogg is not known and loved for producing demure collections and Autumn Winter 2012-13 was no exception. Set to a soundtrack of manic, sawing country and western sounds, the collection featured leather dresses with high neck, long sleeves and full A-line skirts, shown with giant cone-like hats resembling some Little House on the Prairie-on-valium fantasy. Jamie Winstone made a catwalk cameo in one such look. Using colour blocks in red, white and gold, silver and orange, the contouring was divine and played with drawing the eye to various specific parts of the models body. A catsuit with faux fur patch on the crotch had all in the front row smirking. Also shown were Sheer jumpsuits in black with panels that gathered or stripes of leather revealed all save a tiny patch of fabric, some with ruched details; bejewelled bonnet and gown; and the final look, where a girl walked out in nothing but a bonnet and some ribbons to hide her modesty, was the ultimate in Lolita-like innocence and sexuality. Packed to the rafters, the FRow included Tallulah Adeyemi, Alexandra Burke and Janice Dickinson. The show was witty, irreverent and sexy, and it is ballsy, full-blooded collections such as this one which make London Fashion Week the Alice in Wonderland experience it is.
