Initial reaction:

DIY punk artists. 

Model behaviour:

Street cast boys and girls. 

Best women's look:

A short transparent coat covered in expressive faces and furious brushstrokes.

Best men's look:

A clear plastic raincoat doodled with mystical eyes.

How they wore it:

With bare feet and raw edges. 

Key change:

AW13’s rich, theatrical New Look shapes gave way to a raw canvas-like feel and straight shapes, but still scrawled with Barrow’s illustrations.

For the kids:

Oversize hand-painted mask earrings.

Shades:

Cutler & Gross cat-eye versions of Dr Jacoby’s glasses from Twin Peaks.

Most likely to:

Keep drawing on clothes and re-appropriating silhouettes.

Soundtrack:

A Raincoat – It Came In The Night.
