Jamie Wei Huang: London Fashion Week S/S 2015 Catwalk Review

Jamie Wei Huang's SS15 collection was titled Metaphysics, inspired by urban life. Showing at Fashion Scout during September London Fashion Week 2014.

Jamie Wei Huang SS15 by Gaarte.

Jamie Wei Huang is fast becoming one of my favourite new designers, adept at delivering sleekly wearable clothing with clever signature detailing. Her SS15 collection was titled Metaphysics; inspired by myriad forms of urban life, from bike courier to banker. Slouchy tops were paired with A-line skirts and wide culottes, with contrasting elements such as leather shoulder straps and feature pockets used with delicate geometric monochromes, silk jacquards, soft leathers and sheep skins. Of particular note were the glorious saturated moss greens, royal blues and silvery reflective hues pared with crisp white detailing.

Bags were slung low on hips or clutched lightly in hands, whilst models wore casually slicked back hair, simple wristbands and clunky low heeled sandals, a reflection of the new everyday aesthetic which currently reigns supreme on the catwalks.
