As you can see, Huffer sure knows how to put on a good show. Their new AW 11/12 range was full of interesting menswear jackets, shirts and trousers, with a sharp focus on functionality and detail. One jacket could even be transformed into a practical laptop bag. Genius. A brand that prides themselves on being known as ‘board sports inspired fashion’ I was surprised to see how cute and feminine their womenwear line was. Full circle skirts, sheer lace and box pleats were a few reoccurring winter staples. The autumn season was reinforced with a cute leaf print found on dresses, skirts, shirts and matching turbans in grey, orange and blue.
Models had their hair carefully pinned up to resemble Russian Babushka dolls and were sprinkled in fake snow before walking down the runway. Loved the beautiful layering of button up shirts, cable knit jumpers and trenchcoats paired with more knitted beanies, Prada-esque flatforms and jumpers tied around the waist. This was cool styling without even trying to be cool. And who can forget when they closed the show with a girl in a bikini jumping out of a giant cake with tinsel and poppers? Yes that really happened… Models then ran onto the runway laughing and cheering, pulling each person sitting on the front row onto what quickly turned into a huge dance floor on the runway. I think I was the only person who managed to fight off the models but how could I miss taking photos of Yvan, Natalie, Alex and Anna dancing away?
No idea where the alcohol and American flags came from but like I said before, Huffer sure knows how to put on a good show. Or should I say spontaneous party? Thank you for having me guys. Twas a very fun show indeed!
