Think flamboyant, surreal and futuristic and you have ‘Crocodile’ Fyodor Golan‘s A/W’14 collection. Hosted in a artistic East Central London location, Fyodor Golan made sure they had us entertained, captured by the collection and completely wowed. They opened with a collaboration piece between them and Nokia, bringing a super smart skirt that quite literally changes around you thanks to the main feature of the skirt being smart phones! Yup you read that right! The exciting partnership between Nokia and Fyodor Golan brought the world’s first interactive skirt, which featured static and/or live feeds on the 80 screens that adorn the skirt – allowing it to change the wearer and their day.
Onto the actual ‘Crocodile’ collection, the collision between Myanmar and Cambodian tradition as well as the obvious digital fascination were at the heart of the collection. From sheath dresses worn over ruched pants to metallics and dark petrol colour toned materials as well as oversized hooded pieces and lots of PINK the collection exuded both tribal and couture.
Think Buddhist robes, with soft bright pinks and oranges, mix in monks who easily rock the individualized draping and twists of their dress attire, add in the traditional “Longji” skirts that both men and women can rock and you have Fyodor Golan’s collection – and there’s no doubt about where their inspiration came from. This beautiful infusion of traditional meets modern street wear as well technology had me loving every piece!
