LFW Diary SS12: Jena.Theo

Choosing the darker side of Hollywood as the theme for their SS12 collection, design duo Jena Theo displayed once again how they never fail to entertain and excite. Echoing classic film glamour with a seductive take on mystery, the collection is a heady assault for the senses.
A theme after my own heart, the structure of their sexy silhouettes is inspired by the leading ladies of film noir. In the spirit of The Big Heat, Kiss Me Deadly and Mulholland Drive, the Fatale collection contextualises the allure of the anti-heroine.
With lots of sheer silks, floating backless dresses and exposed breasts, fabrics were fluid and Jena Theo signature prints were back in full force. Hand-painted silks, created in collaboration with artist O. Two enhanced a bright and fresh colour palette consisting of golden yellows, sepia and peach tones.
Juxtaposing colour and fabric tones with loose cuts resulted in the models possessing an ethereal quality as they wafted down the catwalk. A wonderful range of flowing evening dresses mixed with denim, Fatale is the ultimate master class in the art of seduction.
