Shrimps AW15

Taking the 70s to outer space in funky fur, retro plaid and bitchin' glittery garments

Initial reaction:

Disco divas in faux fur ready for a night out that's set to be out of this world.

Far out fur:

The 70s was in full swing – from the plaid skirts, to the models’ hair which hung in waves and dishevelled bobs. Oversized fleecy jackets came in grassy green, mustard yellow and pop red, with contrasting strips of colour around the collars and at the elbows. Shrimps own-brand illustrations – which looked like a cross between the work of Quentin Blake and Egon Schiele – decorated jumpers and bags, while a longline sparkly silver jacket shone brighter than the models' lacquered lipstick. The multicolour fluffy clutches and the fur lined heeled shoes – made in collaboration with Sophia Webster – signalled that the collection was made for dancing, of course.

Party on another planet:

The floor looked like a disco ball had fallen from the ceiling and shattered in to a million glittering pieces. The models posed against meteorite structures which grew upwards from the ground, while 70s tunes soundtracked the scene.
