Once you go black, you never go back right? But of course, if you’re Sid Neigum you mix the shade that’s never getting old with golden camel and charcoal grey to create an AW16 collection that stuns.
Standing tall at the Institute of Contemporary Arts were Neigum’s models in designs he describes as ‘maximal meets minimal’. Dominant and soft at the same time, the collection channels an essence of easy majesty without going overboard. Look-at-me outfits don’t have to be bright and zany, that’s just the easy way to do it. With key cuts, quality fabrics and skilled craftsmanship, reserved and refined over rules.
A chunky kimono that stood in its own right instead of looking like it was torn straight from a Jet Li film was a stand out, while long lengths, premium fabrics and choppy cuts worked their magic. Sid Neigum bought adult looks to the table all finished with patent ankle boots, a messy bun and cheek bones to die for.
