LFW Diary SS12: Jacob Kimmie

A designer whose work I first came across while at Amelia’s Magazine is that of South African born Jacob Kimmie whom I interviewed just before his AW10 show. Theming his heavily monochrome collection on Rhapsody for SS12, sheer silks and chiffons dominated.


“A Catholic girl on her way to Catechism, a minimalist Baroque modernism, a reformed and simplified extravagance of dress in a world that is changing, a new innocence, an erotic sensuality, a divine inspired purity, the new dark sophistication.”
I particularly liked the final look of the show - a veiled bride carrying a birdcage. Inspired!
