Eudon Choi

Titled ‘Port La’ Eudon Choi takes his inspiration from the Cornish harbour town of St Ives and the artists who flocked there.

This season Choi teams up with milliner Noel Stewart to create a modern take on the sou’wester – inspired by the commercial fishing trade, their take is luxurious as well as waterproof.

Shoes and bags are a collaboration with Decke.

Malan Breton

Titled ‘Omega’ this last letter of the Greek alphabet signifies the end of a journey to one’s clarity and self.

Showing the fiery side of life or maybe the afterlife, red featured in a diaphanous body hugging organza dress with tiered mermaid fish tail worn with long opera style gloves in shiny PVC and lace-up stiletto ankle boots.

Whilst a heavily sequined bustier evening dress was teamed with micro mini satin gloves and flame red lipstick.

This collection is definitely not for the faint hearted.

Teatum Jones

Titled ‘Global Womanhood’ Teatum Jones’ AW18 collection takes a journey through moments of intense joy, sadness and hope.

For intense joy the designer duo use a palette of explosive red, pink and burgundy tones. Neon pink florals are flocked onto vibrant red organza in pleated asymmetric hemlines.

Passionate pink also appears with hot red on a two tone wide pant suit and two tone chunky knits (collaboration with John Smedley).

Simon MO

Simon MO may not be going over the top with all red as he adds black for high contrast but we are loving this jockey-esque ensemble as he blends smart casual with sport couture.
