EDELINE LEE - SS15 LFW PRESENTATION

The Edeline Lee girl for AW14 was a sneaker-sporting, cobalt-clad, urban girl. Icontrast, SS15 saw a romantic, feminine turn for the London-based Korean Canadian designer, who presented a collection inspired by the renovation of her Victorian home in East London.  

A sense of theatre defines Lee's LFW presentations, and this season's set up - a custom built marquee on the Somerset House terrace - was particularly impressive. Inside the space, models were posed inside individual 'rooms', each themed by a colour card from the Little Greene collection and decorated with colour co-ordinated curios from fine china teapots to ceramic pineapples and romantic canopies of powder-pink roses.

As with stripping back layers of wallpaper in a period property, Lee's collection referenced diverse fashion trends from the past 100 years - from Victorian wasp-waists  to the 1960s pop art colour palette and 1980's geometric lines; diverse themes and decades combined in the collection. 

The minimal, clean, predominantly midi-length lines signature to Edeline Lee's collections were present, with shapes and constructions exploring architecture, yet never straying far from the designer's real niche - fashion forward pieces you can actual wear. 

Although this wasn't my favourite Edeline collection I have viewed (Edeline's Lee AW13 collection was perfection ), as ever the designer delivered on creativity, ideas and the wonderfully wearable.
