Kinder Aggugini Autumn Winter 2010

From the minute I took my seat I fell a bit in love with the Kinder Aggugini show as the catwalk was decorated with elaborate gold candlesticks festooned with greenery and gold eagle statuettes.Kicking off with Kate Bush I did my best to get snap pictures from my back row seat as the collection that seemed part English stately manor and part Matrix went on below.

Inspired by Juliette Recamier Kinder Aggugini conceived a collection “based on the kind of beautiful feisty woman who lives like a true Rockstar whilst turning heads both for her look and her intellect”. The end result was beautiful, delicate flowing silk dresses teamed with rock n roll leathers, military inspired tailoring and structured English country tweeds. Military influences often pop up in Autumn Winter, but this look was less gold buttons and masculine buttoned up formal wear and more 19th century soldiers wife. Think Sharpe wrapping his jacket around the shoulders of a down on her luck aristocratic woman who has just fought off the advances of a boorish Officer by virtue of her superior wit and strength of character.

Combining masculine fabrics like leather and tweed with more feminine silks and fluffy mohairs created a look that was both feminine and powerful, a bit bad girl grows up, and absolutely right up my street.

    The Kinder show does look amazing, well worth the quality write-ups it has received. Love the two coats (the tweed and the black), very wearable!
