Heroic Style

It seems only fitting to show an image from our latest collection ‘Heroes’ inspired by the late, great David Bowie

Bowie was a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends, influencing both men and women over five decades. His androgynous style was a game changer and allowed people to embrace individuality and break the mould of how we are meant to look.

It isn’t very often that you get a male style icon that influences both men and women, but Bowie certainly managed to do that with so many fashion and hair trends from over the years directly linked to him. Our ‘Heroes’ collection plays with strong silhouettes and graphic shapes to create some androgynous looks that are a perfect homage to the man himself.

Our stunning model shows that looks can be strong and even severe, yet still incredibly beautiful and feminine. We’ve seen a lot of 70’s inspired collections on the runway that hold a modern element for S/S 16. This will definitely influence hair, and we’re expecting to see a lot of bright alternative colour trends and techniques to emerge, which we are already seeing on social media and blogger sites. There’s never a better time than the summer to get creative and a little bit of early planning is always a good idea so you’re 100 per cent on board with the idea of a new you when summer arrives.
