After showing her first collection only one season ago, Mimi Wade exploded on the scene and beaome everyone’s favourite when we found out her inspiration, and Gran (!), was the one and only Pamela Curran. For SS17, there was more of the slightly OTT Hollywood glam, this time courtesy of 70s Japanese sci-fi an d noir movies. So while on Mimimount, a Hollywood Hills parody set for Wade’s show at the Topshop Showspace, the 10 models were clad in candy-coloured slips trimmed with super sexy black and nude lace, off-the-shoulder dresses printed with cherries, love hearts and teddy bears, uber cool leopard print and lace flares and a flaming red leather number. Whilst extra kitsch, hemlines were low and modest, although punked up by unfinished and fraying edges. This has to be the best snapshot of the ultimate dress up box found at your Nan’s loft – alluring but slightly tacky, though in the best way possible, of course.
