Dandy in the Underworld

We were looking to dandyism and teddy boy style, reinterpreted through a minimalist aesthetic and worn  gracefully on a woman's body.

"Style is when they're running you out of town and you make it look as if you're leading the parade" -- Sebastian Horsley (1962-2010) 

George Boreham couture sequin jacket, Chanel fingerless gloves

Chanel sleeveless tuxedo top, Gianni Versace high waist black trouser

Jean Paul Gaultier velvet and mesh top, Claude Montana ivory tapered pants

Valentino zebra print trouser, Jil Sander shirt

We were catching a very strong Tina Chow feel from the unfinished proofs. Her androgynous yet elegant style was distinctive and often imitated, yet never improved upon.
