LFW AW16: Faustine Steinmetz

Inspired by minimal architecture and Isamu Noguchi, the Faustine Steinmetz AW16 collection was all about playful, simple shapes, open to manipulation and reinterpretation. Contrasting textures created interest in one colour looks – hand-woven mohair, cotton and metallic yarns met with mirrored leather to great effect. A palette of old rose pink, peach, royal blue, acid lemon and silver adorned not only the models but also their tableaux surroundings.

Presented in the remit of Tate Britain and complete with an art gallery audio guide, the collection was visible only through rectangular slits in large white box structures, courtesy of set designer Thomas Petherick. Proving she is one for aesthetic evolution, Faustine Steinmetz’s art work left us enthused.
