There was something about the backstage space at Julien MacDonald’s SS16 show that conjured up a sense of Robert Palmer’s 80s rock-n-roll classic, Addicted to Love. This may have been due to the fact that the models, before changing into their runway looks, wore black and blue make-up and outfits expressing a demi-gothic look similar to the girls in Palmer’s video.

But the music for the show was a different vibe altogether. Some of the front row guests nodded and tapped their feet as the rumbling baseline of Joey Negro’s old-skool House classic, I need Somebody Tonight shook the venue.

And when the models hit the runway, the designer’s ever-present glam signature was highly visible. Figure hugging dresses in grungy crochet spider webbing with plunging necklines and ultra-low backs were a feature, and high cut shorts and clean cut tops in silver and black lined with sequins, lace and mesh fronts were presented throughout the show.

Macdonald launched his first ever menswear collection this season, and it consisted of baroque-style patterns cut into dress-length t shirts and gladiatior sandals, and roman-esque robes given a subtle floral twist in muted greens and khakis.

Judging from the show’s atmosphere, it’s probably safe to say that a highly-charged after party was scheduled to take place that evening.

    Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any recommendations? Thanks!
