Though she describes her London Fashion Week efforts as “lax, so far,” Jaime Perlman made a special trip out to the Antipodium show yesterday. And a good thing, too, because she was rewarded by seeing blogger Susie Lau and British journalist, musician, and all-around-cool-girl Lauren Laverne (both pictured above) wearing prints she worked on herself.
The Emoji prints were a design collaboration between Perlman and Geoffrey J. Finch (Antipodium’s creative director, pictured above with Lau) last year, and made it into the label’s resort 2013 collection. Perlman was glad to see them in action: “They’re outrageous prints, so it was good to see that they’re wearable — they looked great.”
And Saturday’s show, called “How to Affect Robots and Influence People,” was equally rewarding. “The label is good every season, but this was a really nice collection with a tech-y influence — Geoffrey keeps pushing it further and further.”
Last night, Perlman headed to rag & bone and AnOther magazine’s party at Annabel’s nightclub. “I’m wearing Burberry black chunky platforms and a McQueen dress I got from Liberty — it’s got a flared skirt and a nice baroque print.” Which sounds anything but lax.
