Two bespoke environments through which one collection could be viewed.
The Autumn/Winter 2019 runway show challenged the idea of perspective and perception.
A collection presented in two different spaces. One structured, traditional and formal, the other more rebellious and brutalist – allowing the same clothes to be viewed from two very different vantage points.
‘I have been thinking a lot about England as a country of contrasts, from the structured to the rebellious and free, and I wanted to celebrate how these elements coexist.’
Rebellious youths scaled fence walls in one space, sending a message of liberation and freedom, while order and structure prevailed in the other.
The music was designed exclusively by M.I.A. and commissioned by Riccardo Tisci. Two bespoke soundscapes took both audiences on different journeys – from the 90s to the present day, referencing contrasting genres of music.
