On Saturday afternoon, I was invited to Alexis’ Barrell AW13 collection “Metropolis” that took place in Saint Martin’s Lane hotel in London.
“Metropolis” was inspired by German expressionism, Berlin street art and punk scene and consists of futuristic cuts and androgynous shapes; playing with texturing contrasts of calf skins and mohair vs strict technical fabrics along with signature silks and colour accents ranging from urban concrete, steel and black on black to the colourful palettes of Helen Frankenthaler.

P.S. Sorry I’ve been inactive for such a long time, but my mac passed away and left me, all alone, outside the fashion blogosphere.
I am baaaack…
