A very impressive collection by Leroy Nguyen. He first showed at Mercedes-Benz in 2003 when he opened The Innovators show and now he’s back with his first standalone. His collection, titled Blue Rose, was inspired by Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth. The result was fresh and full of vibrant patterns and hues.
What I liked about the collection was that although it was quite wearable, there was also a very clear aesthetic. The lines are are clean and sharp and the range blends well together thanks to his use of tailoring and colour. It has a somewhat quite relaxed and sporty feel to it with the exposed metal zips and use of lycra and hydro-mesh.
I can’t wait to see what he does next year!
