Riffing off her latest men’s collection, which took cues from ravers at Manchester’s famous Haçienda nightclub, designer Stephanie Hahn veered into darker streetwear territory for her women’s range, while keeping everything luxurious via her label’s trademark high-end fabrics.
The combination was spot-on. A retro track top was a natural match to a long, sleeveless vest in padded English heritage checks. Elsewhere, Hahn juxtaposed extra-voluminous pants and bulky tops with lean outerwear, including a cool quilted zip-up coat in bottle-green satin with sleeves taken from a classic bomber jacket. An elongated vest done up with curly faux fur from German teddy bear specialist Steiff, meanwhile, was raw and desirable, like most of the collection.
Softer touches included flowers. Hahn had them handmade in leather and velvet and appliquéd to a sporty long dress. Boasting heavy zippers reminiscent of professional sports gear and sequins, the gown skewed eccentric — much like the poetry of Edward James, whom the designer had on her mood board.
