Malan Breton SS18 at London Fashion Week

Titled 'Hades in Darkness, Breton draws his inspiration from the Edwardian and Victorian era,

focusing on the magical darkness  and the comic book styled villains that roamed the shadows of this time.

Video of the show's finale:

Breton juxtaposes modern athleisure silhouettes with classic tailoring of yesteryear

and couture contours crafted at Lesage in Paris.

Wire, bone and rubber convey a story of modernism, sex and chaotic beauty - it's Moulin Rouge meets Blade Runner meets Camille.

Silk and tulles are transformed to give the illusion of wings

whereas hand beading and Asian brocades rival these with attributes of the underworld.

Patterns are strong with Asian symbols derived from Malan's Taiwanese roots

and sit alongside butterflies and mythological creatures.
