Pam Hogg S/S 2013 by Faye West.
Pam Hogg was, as ever, a hot ticket this season – ensuring that the likes of Bobby Gillespie, Nick Cave, and Nick Rhodes had snagged a front row seat. Celeb spotting is always a highlight of any Pam Hogg catwalk show. Because, let’s face it – you pretty much know what you are going to get: intricately cut catsuits, famous tit and ass… plus some tantalisingly wonderful clothes.
This season Pam Hogg took as inspiration the uniforms of nurses and air hostesses mixed in with a small dose of inpatient chic: out stepped models in barely there white voile outfits that covered only the necessities (or not even that in the case of Alice Dellal, who revealed her pert bottom in a peek-a-boo dress.) A small white strip or peaked hat served as head decoration, worn with high metallic platforms. Zips were a major feature used to describe the shape of looser all-in-ones, space station worthy in silver on Dellal once more.

For S/S 2013 the signature panelled Hogg catsuit comes in a stunning metallic colourway: russet, coffee, lime green and yellow. She also revisited the brilliant dirndl skirt of last season, this time in flaming shades of sunshine. Sequinned mesh and copious quantities of frothy netting guaranteed there was plenty of flesh on show, with one of the slightest outfits worn by Lady Mary Chateris: she who recently married her rock star man in stripper-style Hogg. Another look called to mind an exotic chicken.
Closing the show came the most interesting garments: densely ruffled skirts and bodices that were both stiff and light at once, worn with high pleated headdresses worn proud on the back of the head. One stunning dress furled out around the face in an echo of the skirt below, like some extraordinary decadent flower. How I wish that our Pam would build on ideas like these.
