Now celebrating their 15th season showing at London Fashion Week, Central Saint Martin’s trained womenswear design duo Meadham Kirchhoff brought some serious drama to the runways of their A/W 11 collection. Sending a mob of models down the runway to the sinister soundtrack of Psycho, the 24-piece collection descended upon the Topshop space, announcing a haunting, formal and ominous aesthetic. Exploring feminine ideals of sexuality through pleated pinafores, loose fitting cardigan jackets and suggestively lacy underskirts, the woman befitting of this season’s theme was described by Benjamin Kirchhoff as one who ‘didn’t seek approval from men’. Collaborating with millinery wizard Nasir Mazhar, a dark witch-like theme was omnipresent, accentuated by the memorials constructed in the middle of the runway, commemorating the passing of the previous collection. This was a full moon moment for the two riot girl inspired fashion east originators.
