LFW AW16: Backstage at Vin + Omi

Heading backstage at last night’s Vin + Omi show was like falling down a rabbit hole of colour and texture. The oil paint portraits on the wall looked on as the Colourotic show prepared itself for its first outing.

Fur, latex and suede sat next to each other on the rails, showing off the variety of mediums that the design duo use to create this; their art.



The classic Vin + Omi staggering heel returned for another season, this time wrapped in fabric, emulating the scraps of pastel netting that littered the catwalk later on.


Blunt, choppy coloured wigs were greased into wild shapes, while make-up remained relatively low-key; a simple smoky eye was enough to complement the wild clothes.
