The show was set designed as a dramatic wasteland of rusted Cadilacss and Chevrolet’s piled up on top of each other setting the punk tone perfectly of anti-establishment.
The girl gang models stomped out wearing studded fringed creepers, Easy Rider leather jackets, Elvis t-shirts and feminine floral tea dresses.
The designer showcased nice touches to the collection of a desert sand suede dress, Jaws red jumper and studded bags with detail of lockets and chains were designed to match the model and outfit .
The British designer was only appointment by the brand in 2013, previously at Louis Vuitton and Loewe, and has taken the direction of the company into new style territory. The heritage brand known for their exquisite leather goods has quickly made a name for themselves in the realm of ready-to-wear.
