On day 2 of London Fashion Week Fyodor Golan was my first catwalk show for the day. It’s no surprise that the vibrant fashion label has reached its 5th Anniversary! As designers Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman approach their celebratory landmark they are soaring on their reputation of experimental design and dauntless colour, however this time around the show started off with an almost blank canvas.
Opening the show was a lightweight utility style overcoat featuring a wide and longline lapel (collar). Once you looked beyond the simple pebble grey layers that gently flowed into one another, you could see that there was more to it than just an invariable canvas. The coat was layered over a peak collared shirt dress with a square cut pocket detail that flowed in to a waterfall ruffle that cascaded down one side of the dress. Additional detail was reserved for the back of the over coat with two horizontally relaxed openings positioned across the upper and lower back. This monotone ensemble paved the way for the explosion of colour and print that was on its way.
