Meadham Kirchhoff psychadelic show gives fashion set disco fever


Welcome to the circus: Psychedelic Meadham Kirchhoff gives fashion set disco fever

If Burberry's extravagant show was the one that forced a smile onto the chins of the typically stony-faced fashion set, the Meadham Kirchhoff show was the one that made them erupt into giggles.

The pair – Edward Meadham, who is English, and Benjamin Kirchhoff, who is French – delivered the most deliriously fun collection of London Fashion Week.

They threw trends and seriousness to the wind and created an outrageously-styled show full of glitter, tinsel, sequins… and with a strong disco vibe.

The show took place in the Old Billingsgate Market, but disco lights and music transported frowers straight back to the Seventies.

Clothes came in every colour of the rainbow, with a particular emphasis on yellows and oranges.

Sequinned pants were worn over striped, glittery tights, tartan dresses were worn over paisley shirts, and brightly patterned faux-fur jackets were worn over everything and anything.

The models' faces were colour-blocked with circus-style face paint clashing with their outfits, or simply highlighted with splashes of colour.

Clashing prints and colours: With so much going on, there may have been a better way to showcase individual items from the collection

Fluorescent wigs had been teased into hairstyles as interesting as the clothes. And even the models' nails had been adorned with extravagant nail art.

With so much going on, there may have been a better way to showcase individual items from the collection.

But by the time ABBA's Dancing Queen came on for the show's finale Meadham Kirchhoff had one everyone over.
