New York Fashion Week was amazing last week, and London is playing no games either! Yesterday, designer Ashish Gupta presented his Ashish spring 2015 collection and made quite an impression. There were so many levels to his presentation from sequins to glitter to fifties Americana style to denim renovations to snakeskin to furry shoes and so much more! They are also the only brand this season to cast all black models for their runway presentation which made us love the collection even more! Ashish definitely set the bar pretty high with this collection, especially for embellishments and details! The collection, as Ashish Gupta put it, was “a chaotic, psychological mishmash of abstract ideas that I’ve wanted to explore for ages.” & we’re so glad that he did! This is definitely the collection for the young and stylish, the trendsetters; the Ashish women is headed out to a fabulous party, and she’s going to get results!
And of course, they managed to throw in some pop-culture homages as well because why not?! Kimye, Miley Cyrus, and One Direction made an appearance…well sort of! There were bedazzled faces of Kim and Kanye and Miley Cyrus featured on pastel sweaters, and the faces of 1D graced a pair of jeans. We wonder if these stars have seen the collection yet!
Ashish spring 2015 was a daring combination of pastels, bright colors distressed denim, animal prints, graphics, glitter-streaked hair, and furry platform heels that we actually really love (which will be sold in Topshop in February)! We can’t wait to see how some of the pieces from the runway will be rocked in street style.
This is why we love London fashion: it’s fun, daring, and bold, always making a statement! The Ashish collection was pretty dope, definitely Kontrol-approved! Check out some of the looks from the show, and let us know your faves!
We love the Ashish Spring 2015 collection! It definitely made us wish that we were in London right now attending shows at fashion week! What do you guys think of the collection? Leave us a comment and let us know.
