DAY 4

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News Bazaar -

The youngest grad­u­ate of Cen­tral Saint Martins’s MA fashion course, Thomas Tait went on to win the first LVMH Young De­signer Prize, judged by a star panel that in­cluded Marc Ja­cobs, Phoebe Philo, Karl Larg­er­feld, Ni­co­las Gh­esquière, and LVMH’s ex­ec­u­tive vice-pres­i­dent Del­phine Ar­nault.

For AFF, min­i­mal­is­tic max­i­mal­ist fluid de­signs of dar­ing hues, ab­stract colour-blocked prints, and a clever play of high-tech fab­rics gave his looks a retro Thierry Mu­gler feel. In an in­ter­est­ing twist, a tech­ni­cal glitch had mod­els walk­ing dou­ble time. While this made In­sta­gram­ming dif­fi­cult, it some­how added to the provoca­tive, al­most sub­ver­sive look and feel of the col­lec­tion.
