It was survival of the fittest for AW15 at Danielle Romeril – scavenge and salvage to make new wears. Feast your eyes on Romeril’s warriors.
LFW: Danielle Romeril AW15
Titling her collection Survival this season, Romeril explored the idea of a desolate world in which you can no longer purchase your wears, centring her concept on scavenging and salvaging to make new things.
Leather scales born from ancient Japanese armour techniques, asymmetric tartan, rough cut denim, flocked lace, velvet corduroy, quilted outerwear and blanket silhouettes – for AW15 Romeril presented a mash-up of contrasting textures, that complete her warrior wardrobe. Whilst the textures clashed, so did the finish. Taking inspiration from the brutal romanticism found in the outdoors, Romeril’s girls mastered both ‘done’ and ‘undone’ to stellar result.
Fierce barefaced models, save for a white tribal smudge of face paint above the eye, walked upon lavender scented wood-chip floor. A continuation of contrast, Romerils collection was powerful with a sweet smelling edge.
