SUGAR + SPICE
London: Inspired by “starlets, showgirls, beauty pageant winners, models, and princesses” this season, Meadham Kirchoff designers Ed Meadham and Ben Kirchhoff presented a saccharin sweet collection of short, girlish looks. A playful palette of apple red and cotton candy pastels played up the theme along with vintage cartoon imagery and teddy bear-shaped pockets. Fabrics ranged from playtime plaid shirtings to a lovely laser-cut satin resembling broidery anglaise. -Anna Jane Davis
