Jena. Theo AW12 Catwalk Collection at London Fashion Week

Titled ‘Heavy Metal’, the collection was not as I expected to be; there were no  biker boots, skull motifs or chains. Here heavy metal represented strength with style and the confident effortless presence of a woman.

The models wore their hair combed back into a tight no nonsense pony tail and their makeup in a natural look to compliment the pure forms of the collection.

Seemingly plain staple silk shirts soon revealed their true identity as they billowed like capes at the back where the length grew longer and the fabric more voluminous.
 Long hand cut leather fringing embellished the soft raw leather pieces...

.... and splash design prints by the artist O graced the oversized t-shirts and long dresses. Jeans were sprayed on skinny, some with asymmetrical hems and leather pocket detailing.

The shearling jacket was given an update with a soft waterfall opening.
Colour palette was neutral greys, blacks and bleached blue.
This collection was not as dramatic as their dark and grungy ‘Valkyre’ AW11 collection, but definitely a more wearable casual style.
