Paul Costelloe knows how to put on a fashion show, this Grand Meister of fashion blew our expectations out of the water this season with a much stronger, powerful collection than previous seasons.
Front row at Costelloe in the Meridien Hotel’s Oak Room with its wood panelled walls and crystal chandeliers made for a dramatic setting.
Inspired by the modern day female warrior, the Costelloe woman is ambitious, fearless and a fighter. The collection is a departure from Costello’s usual style of 60’s and 70’s swing skirts and pastels. This was much bolder power dressing of the 80’s and a reminder of his heritage of supreme tailoring.
Sharp, oversized military coats in warm red checks and distorted herringbone. Trademark Costelloe babydoll dresses were in transparent organza, all a little racy for Costelloe woman, but I loved it.
Let’s also for a moment just talk bags, slouchy rucksack in leather and shearling, fringed clutches in leather and suede, deliciously beautiful.
Paul Costelloe said, ” I hope this collection conveys my aspirations in moving the Paul Costelloe brand forward, in an exciting and unconventional manner.”
And so it does Paul, so it does!
