This collection had all of my BIGGEST fashion favourites: Fur, leather, feathers, taxidermy and a whole heap of fetish! On paper, the collection shouldn't have worked at all, the mix of colours/textures/materials was all over the place...However, Hogg managed to pull it off big time.
Hoggs reputation for edgy and contemporary womenswear was fully reinforced as the show unfolded...First their where Edward Scissorhand-esque leather trenches with straps and buckles...followed by bodysuits composed of PVC strips barely covering the models at all (complete with stuffed raven headpieces!), then their was kaleidoscopic and breathtaking fur coats...It just kept coming!
Hogg has the ability to combine the most simplistic of leather dresses, with the extravagance of a gold and yellow fur embellished dress...flawlessly! The collection as a whole is stunning, and every piece worked together to create what is an aptly titled show: ''Far from the madding crowd''
Here are my favourite pieces, It was a tough choice...I loved every last stitch!
