Richard Quinn Shows A Special Collection At Liberty

La Neophitou loved. *Lurrrved* “Get it up everywhere, gorge,” she phoned into HQ this AM. And it was very good. Richard Quinn’s a fine young talent, you see – the CSM-grad taking maximal, couture like shapes and warping them to create something wholly more unsettling. Today’s show was in Liberty, and so he worked with ten liberty prints, the fabrics wrapped up into hefty ball gown shapes, mixed with gathers of shiny foil and veil-like headpieces that sat over the model’s faces, stitched with the word “Liberty”. Floral dresses, that sat just off the shoulder, clashed with floral print gloves and face-covering bodysuits. It felt like an almost an explosion of richness, reminiscent of Galliano or McQueen, which is really quite good company, is it not? The pieces will be available to buy in Liberty to celebrate the reopening of their womenswear floor. Guess who’s going to be first in the queue?
