Initial Reaction:

Don't let anyone tell you girls can't rodeo.

Standout look:

A forest green silk cardigan with a gold lamé circle skirt embroidered with distressed red roses.

Overheard:

“I feel like we’re waiting for aliens to arrive,” my neighbour says as the music comes on and bright light shines out from backstage.

Soundtrack:

The psychedelic "Some Velvet Morning” by Lee Hazlewood, with Nancy Sinatra.

References:

The work of outsider artist Eugene Von Bruenchenhein.

Unexpected details:

Satin cactus flower patches, destroyed rose embroidery, and spidery Swarovski crystal embellishments

How they wore it:

A trench fastened with one button at the neck, blowing open like a sleeved cape, revealing trim little shorts.

Innovation:

Prototype 21: a mysterious new foam fabric from an Italian factory. According to Shane Gabier, one half of Creatures of the Wind, it's easy to embroider.

Location:

Pace Gallery in Chelsea. A space as blank as they come, yet recently home to Jay Z’s viral six hour performance with Marina Abramović.

Quote of the show:

"A little bit Dolly Parton, a little bit Disco" - Emma Wyman, show stylist and Dazed fashion editor.
