Zaha Hadid is a devoted customer of rising fashion star Thomas Tait, and her front-row presence tidily foreshadowed the architectural coats that stormed down his very long catwalk at a neon-lit underground carpark.

This was a confident outing for Tait, whose sporty, motor racing inspiration — though literally interpreted — translated into clothes that were sleek and dynamic, especially the leather coats — one cropped, one long — with clean necklines and back vents that jutted out like aerodynamic body work.

Pit-crew jumpsuits, puffa jackets with couture-like contours, silk tops with contrasting panels, and lean stirrup pants completed this fast, furious and exhilharating collection.
