Ashish Gupta describes his SS13 heroine as ‘cool, calm but highly uncollected…an archetypal math geek.’ A symphony of sequins, denim and sweaters, this was a collection which fell easily into the category of ‘so wrong it’s right’.
Chic is not the right word to describe the models who loped, rather than strutted (something highly likely to be caused by the nineties-style Reeboks and glittery sock replacing the ubiquitous skyscrapers), down the catwalk. Urbane. Cool. Nonchalant. The Ashish girl is the one we all know who can fling something on without even thinking and it will always looks great. A denim biker worn sideways? Sure. Half tracksuit, half sequin trousers? Of course. A refreshing change from the normal sophistication of fashion week, it’s time to take note – for Spring school is the new cool.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22AIwYueCeo&feature=youtu.be[/youtube]
