LFW Diary AW12: Simeon Farrar

Entitled ‘The Haunted House’ Simeon Farrar’s AW12 collection is exactly what I’ve come to expect from this multi-talented artist and designer. A perfect balance of fun prints, cute silhouettes and playful colours there is an eerie undercurrent to this offering that draws parallels between flickering candlesticks and decadent chandeliers and between cobwebs and ancient lace.
Towering, decrepit houses loom large with distant figures visible in the window, while monolithic skulls stare out with lifelike eyes. Portraying a series of ghosts as a happy-go-lucky group who skip and dance, ‘The Haunted House’ brings together an eclectic array of inspirations and characters who emerge from the shadow of vein-like tree branches or hide in the lining of leather bags.
