Sid Neigum presented his S/S17 collection at Brewer Street Carpark, a suitable location for the collection’s hard, cold and minimal aesthetic. With the show running, surprisingly for Fashion Week, precisely on time, guests were treated to an energetic show accompanied by a fast techno soundtrack.
Neigum’s collection was divided into three colour-ways: red, black and white. Although uncompromisingly minimal, there were great differences between each garment, with small detailing separating the pieces from one another. The clothing was light, breathable and excellently suited to the warmer months, with netting, silk wraps and large smock shapes dominating the collection. The models wearing the garments appeared completely in control of what they were wearing, as the confidence carried out the simple designs, while the barely-there footwear ensured all attention was on the garments.
Similarly to Tata Naka, there was a great variety of ethnicities in the show with no compromise made. Each model suited the garments perfectly, as the strode confidently to the heavy soundtrack.
Neigum’s show was an enjoyable end to London Fashion Week. While the music was energetic, the clothing served its purpose of beautiful minimalism.
