One of London Fashion Week’s hottest tickets drew in the expected large crowd at the Fashion Scout showspace, held at Freemason’s Hall in Holborn. Pam Hoggs shows are often amongst the most highly anticipated of the season, and Autumn Winter 2017 did not fall short. The always theatrical, fun and high energy show brought an intergalactic punk-rock navy ship to London.
Putting a glitter-punk spin on military and sailor inspired clothing, Hoggs’ collection was as heavy in sequins as it was in PVC. With a retro sentiment alluding to the wonder years of glam rock, the collection took Barbarella Queen of the Galaxy and set it on a cruise ship to a soundtrack of Bowie and Blondie.
Hogg’s “Army of Lovers” stormed down the runway in leather trenchcoats and bodysuits. Menswear was featured in the form of complete leather looks, with open shirts and tight PVC. The collection featured a flower undertone with the use of daisy yellows, deep reds and greens, and a black dress with roses attached. All black and all white outfits were seen between standout sequined jumpsuits and belted dresses. Roller pins in model’s hair and bonnets were also seen, further exaggerating the vintage feel to the collection.
