Anya Hindmarch Fall 2015

There is always a playful, ‘tongue and cheek’ to look forward to at an Anya Hindmarch presentation – which seems to becoming a fun and happy staple to the end of London Fashion Week each season – and fortunately, for those of us looking for a good time, she did not disappoint with her Fall 2015 collection.

Inspired by, you guessed it, driving – and the feeling that comes from the open road – the iconic images that accompany the verb was the latest installment in the Anya Hindmarch photog-worthy stamps that she has rapidly become known for (who will ever forget her use of the Kellogg’s characters or emoji symbols?) There were styles emblazoned with the easy to identify signage like “STOP”, “Under Construction”, “No U-Turn”, and graphic arrows and she even had fun with accessorizing her accessories (say that 10x fast) as a bucket bag was topped with a “air freshener” name-tag leather keychain and her signature tassels resembled a traffic cone. A welcoming surprise was Hindmarch’s entrance into ready-to-wear with her first capsule collection which often reflected the fun theme including a non-smoking symbol blouse and trouser set and graphic arrows decorated the nylon and fur outerwear. “I don’t think of it as a move into ready-to-wear, but a natural extension of my accessories. The pieces are chic, easy to wear, and have that same playful sensibility.”
