Known for his modern knitwear and celebrity fanbase, with the likes of Beyonce and Tilda Swinton in its ranks, Mark Fast’s autumn winter 2020 did not fail to impress. Live music from Izzy Lindqwister and a neon lighting scheme throughout the coveted Mayfair venue made the 9am show the only acceptable substitute for breakfast with a vibrant awakening bathed in fluorescent fuchsia.
The Vibe – a fresh twist on Sixties Chic
The nostalgic energy was palpable at the show, courtesy of Maria Kovacs sixties inspired hair. Models sported complementary miniskirts matching the swinging sixties aesthetic, complete with colour pop tailoring, built by Fast.
Adorned in their athletically glamorised puffer coats, a series of long and short sock-style boots tied together the mod spirit with contemporary charm, providing a platform for Calvin Opaleye’s eccentric styling.
Feathers, Fluff & Puff
As the looks progressed, so did the lengths, leading us into a world where maxi dresses of crochet and plumage were layered over classically tailored shirts, set to redefine work wear and feather fill power.
Loud puffer jacket sets, branded in Mark Fast motifs decorated the runway and were styled to add athletic edge to a fully sixties look as well as independently, contributing to that cool-girl charm that ran through the whole collection.
The collection boasted a variety of bold trans-seasonal looks that were as nostalgic as they were modern, reaffirming Fast’s position as one of London’s most innovative and courageous designers.
