I need to start this ode to Kinder Aggugini with an apology for the poor image quality of shots taken above. The collection for Spring Summer 2013 is quite frankly the best I’ve seen from the brand and sadly I had only an iPad to capture the magic as it happened on the catwalk.
This season Kinder was inspired by “The Old Man and The Sea”. When the invitation to the show arrived, we knew there would be something nautical involved as the decoration was all “at sea.” What followed on the catwalk did not disappoint. With a soundtrack playing in the background that I am convinced is the best mix I’ve ever heard at a fashion show, I fell in love with the Kinder Aggugini girl for spring summer 2013. The prints for the collection are not overly nautical but rather suggest the theme politely and elegantly to the buyer. The prints seduced us all in the audience. I watched as both women and men were mesmerised by the visual candy strutting in front of them. From the printed shirts to the final dress resembling an octopus, this was a collection worthy of recognition the world around.
Not only did I fall in love with the clothes on the Kinder Aggugini catwalk, I also fell in love with the shoes. This is MOST surprising as I have quite often expressed my extreme hate for anything clog related. However, these hand painted clogs were a brilliant accessory to the collection and have completely transformed my mindset on the idea of clogs in a wardrobe. Perhaps they can be useful after all!
Also, while it may be hard to tell from the photos, there wasn’t a panty line in sight at the show… that’s all down to Triumph’s (official supplier of catwalk lingerie for SS13 LFW) Body Makeup nude thongs.
