LFW SS11 Day Four: Ada Zanditon

So this is my last show review of the week - it's been hectic, but as massively fun as always, and I know going back to my normal life is going to feel very very boring!

The Ada Zanditon collection was called "The Pyramora": inspired by (yup, you guessed it!) the Great Pyramids of Egypt. The prints were angular and the silhouettes were really structured with sharp shoulders and other details on dresses and jackets: you could really get a sense of the Pyramid through every piece. Of course the hair carried the theme, with triangular hair pieces added to slicked back 'dos.

The colour palette was sand and gold; both colours that immediately evoke Ancient Egypt, with a recurring theme of resurrection throughout the collection which tied it to Modern Egypt. In Egypt today locals defy global corporations by protecting the environment and flourishing corals from over exposure to the tourist industry: this interest in the coral envelops the collection as the prints were created using hi res photos of the coral reefs.

I loved the Ada Zanditon collection last year, and i'm crazy about it this year - it was a great final show to end my season! Thanks again to Style Compare for their sponsorship and support!

Love, Tor xx
