LFW: Sailex’s edgy angels

September 19, 2010

Sailex’s duality-themed collection portrayed the contradictory facets of a women’s mind. This collection of gowns and dressed (called “Fallen Angel”) portrayed the duality with fluid lines, rich fabrics, some bling, and military elements.

His colour palette was anything but subtle—black, tomato, magenta, navy and purple, accessorised with gold. He played with textures and embellishments, by mixing velvet and chiffon and using pleats, drapes and glittering external shoulder pads and epaulet to give his collection certain amount of edginess. He added texture to models’ hair as well, with crimped sections, hair flying lose, or pulled into a haphazard updo with strands all over the place.

Sailex says that the woman who wears his outfits is strong and daring, and the type “who could bash someone up”. For that to come through, we’d need a bit more edginess. Even so, I liked most of what I saw. His gowns could be a good investment for bold party girls.
