Faith Connexion Fall/Winter | 2019
Updated: Mar 27, 2019
We entered the room, Johnny and myself. It was dimly lit, illuminating graffiti and chairs outlining the runway to come. Place de Tokyo was the chosen venue for Faith Connexion latest runway debate. One one end of the runway there was a large projection screen, here a short video clip of Swizz Beats introduced the show- counting us down to the first look.
For his first full collection as creative director Nikola Vasari, gave a voice to the brand. Something funky, glamorous, with soutle hints of rebellion- animal prints are done in metallic finishes, sequenced mini dresses, and holy knitwear.
Overall the collection spoke for itself. I looked to Johnny we shared a knowing glance, either you were blown away from the oversized silhouettes, flowing romanticness of dresses and western inspired fringe leather jackets, or underwhelmed. I was somewhere in between. The collection played homage to the grunge era of the '80s and '90s - largely reflected their muses of Courtney Love and Grace Jones.
The pallet was mostly monochromatic with hints of purples, metallic sea greens, and ruby read details. The show closed with a mixed animal print dress, flowing and embellished with the wispy feather, blowing in the wind as the model walked. With one show under his belt, it will be exciting to see where Nikola Vasari takes us next season.
