Leutton Postle: London Fashion Week

The Leutton Postle catwalk was possibly the quickest of the whole week, however, in spite of this the Central Saint Martins graduates Sam Leutton and Jenny Postle certainly hit the nail on the head when they described the collection was, ‘visually arresting, playful and intensely detailed.’

Knitwear was highly common among the catwalk this season, however, no other designer displayed the diverse range of techniques and effects as Leutton Postle. Pieces featured detailed lining consisting of tiny pom-poms, metallic patchworks woven into the key face motif and wool tassels all fitted into the fun and intricately detailed collection.

There was so much to feast your eyes upon from the contrasting colours of earthy tones and bright primaries to the use of metallics and the intricate knit fringing or the faces apparent in the designs and use of masks. I scanned each outfit trying to take in everything, constantly finding myself surprised and impressed and, though the show only lasted a mere six minutes, I took in more than I did during some of the 20 minute catwalks.
