LFW SS22: Mark Fast

INSIDE A multistorey car park just off Leister Square, Mark Fast hosted his SS22 runway show at London Fashion Week. Harking back to times gone by, the designer drew from the ‘chaotic magnificence’ of the 90s.

Paying homage to London’s enduring underground, Fast took his audience on a journey of after-party exuberance with sheer fabrics, cut-out dresses and oversized acid-wash denim.

The designer’s signature bold neon pallet was softened this season with pastel greens, blues, pinks and yellows, juxtaposed by chains woven into slashed micro-knits, and a new interlocking MF monogram in graphic repeat prints and hand-painted onto oversized denim staples – harmonious with the painterly, graffitied backdrop in the show space.

The models stomped down the runway to the sound of 90s pop hits wearing knee-high stiletto boots in black patent and spray-painted white PVC. The accessories were dominated by silver chain detailing and era-appropriate micro-sunglasses.

Fast’s growth over the past year, with new stores opening in Beijing, Chongqing and most recently, Hong Kong, has allowed the designer to develop his use of materials and practices while communicating his vision in the most vivid and eccentric way.
