When I was at London Fashion Week I was lucky enough to be invited down to the Edeline Lee SS14 presentation. It was held in the abandoned King’s College classrooms underneath Somerset house – an interesting place for a presentation. It was unlike anything I’d ever been to before. Usually it’s very straight forward – we all stand around while the models come out one by one and we can take pictures of each look. Edeline Lee went for something entirely different.
When we arrived we were asked to view a series of rooms, clockwise to get the best experience of the collection. We also treated to some live singing – I really liked the set up and it added an almost haunting vibe to it, as the vocals echoed around the empty rooms. The collection itself was made up of some beautiful graphic printed dresses, Lee was inspired by playing piano as a child. You can see how piano key shapes work the way into the collection. My favourite look had to be the model at the bottom of the corridor holding a balloon – the monochrome dress is perfection, the pleating is a simple addition but adds something special.
