LFW: Fyodor Golan

Regency met Tribal in Fyodor Golan’s a/w 2011 collection.

This collision of two ideas reflects the very essence of the brand as Fyodor and Golan describe themselves ‘a design duo that share design sensibility, aesthetics and ideas, combining their methods and strengths to create a new timeless and desirable look’.

To open the show the pair sent down the runway a slew of navy dresses. In one, the regency style empire line was contrasted with a ruffled neckline hemmed with zippers, another with a jersey floor length skirt had a leather body with a beaten out pattern- inspired by tribal scarring- and secured only with belt straps round the back.

A cream waterfall jacket broke the trend and from that point black, grey and even cobalt blue (on a strapless gown) flooded in.

The tribal theme was maintained throughout, with the model’s plaited hair and the beaten-out leather plates that at one point became the dramatic neck piece for a black ruffled mini dress and then the breast plate of a pale-grey pleated chiffon dress. They also incorporated feather bralets into bodices, teamed with skirts and harem pants whilst often maintaining the traditional regency silhouette.

Somehow the pair have created a cohesive aesthetic from two diverse and even contradicting ideas-not an easy feat by any standards.
