The models loomed out of the shadows, the lack of faces created a sense of foreboding usually experienced whilst a character is turning a corner in a computer game or zombie horror flick. The masked faces a potential nod to the distant future where the face-mask becomes a fashion fixture as a side effect to their required and prescribed use.

Studio 805 endlessly playful designs develop or encourage a sense of character within the wearer, those choosing these designs have a clear sense of their identity. A trait unsurprising from a designer who honed their tailoring skills whilst on a placement with Vivienne Westwood.

Studio 805 design unisex collections, however their strength appears to be in menswear, the singular dress in the collection appearing almost as an afterthought of excess material

An innovative collection, one I would love to see move around the viewer, enhancing the sense of performance that in this presentation lay latent in the Studio’s styling and staging of the collection.

Studio 805 are a welcome fixture to the growing presence of menswear at London Fashion Week. Andrew Bannister the designer behind the studio graduated from Leeds College of Art and Design and relocating to London, subsequently participating in the first round of ‘ones to watch’ in 2009.
