London: Eudon Choi’s latest outing took inspiration from ‘Metabolism’, a Japanese architectural movement created in the Fifties; Metabolism reutilised existing Asian design, recycling popular styles and linking biological growth with striking results. Choi translated the extraordinary beauty of this movement via geometric forms, outstanding outerwear, precise tailoring and architectural knits. From the opening number – a double breasted leather jacket worn with a flared layered shirt and an A-line skirt – to the last look – a fuchsia jacquard top worn over wide-legged trousers with a fuchsia contrast side panel – every garment was carefully tailored to recreate the strong geometric forms of the Metabolism movement. The outerwear stole the show – bomber jackets were updated with floral jacquards and contrast panels while parkas, overcoats and long aviator jackets featured colour-blocked details and side splits. There was a nod to the Seventies thanks to covetable turtleneck shirts and flared trousers. – Diego Sanchez
