Phoebe English: London Pre Collections 2016
Once again, we turn to our own personal font of all London Pre Collection knowledge, Garth Spencer, who has the following to say about Phoebe English, “linen and latex”. Which automatically is making me think of Stevie Nicks and Leather and Lace. Because why not give to someone your linen rather than your leather and take from them, or was it you, their/your latex rather than lace. Anyway, this is a collection of distressed layers. Cropped tops and pencil skirts of sheer latex in dusty pink and a greyish black layered with ripped apart and shredded linens that give the illusion of falling away from the body in a rather saucy, vagabond way.
