PSYCHO KILLER
London: Looking to the “psychotic nature of man” present in movies like American Psycho, designer Khalid Al Qasimi pursued an unusual brand of creepy futurism for F/W 13. In this tightly edited presentation, sage-colored oversized shirts and matching pants came in bonded jacquard and neoprene with a luxurious metallic finish, while a felted suit had a pleasing monochrome appearance. Leather tops, wide leg trousers and pleated schoolboy shorts were less successful, as their feminine proportions were at odds with the slick tone of Qasimi’s latest collection. —Nina Stotler
