Get an Exclusive Backstage Look at Clio Peppiatt's Spring/Summer 2018 Show

We spoke to the designer ahead of her LFW presentation.

The first thing that struck us about Clio Peppiatt‘s Spring/Summer 2018 presentation was millennial pink. The entire set – the carpet, the elaborately-laden table, was swathed in the Internet’s most popular shade. Rose petals were scattered across the pastel carpet and fresh flowers, candles, tarot cards, lobsters and miniature meringues adorned what was likely the most Instagrammable show of LFW.

The designer told us herself the collection was inspired by the recently released film, The Love Witch, about a beautiful witch with whom men fall so in love that they die. “There was this theme of extreme femininity and then it sort of twisted with something darker and macabre, and that’s something I related to in my work,” said Clio. The theme rings true throughout – the pieces appear innocently feminine at first, but look closer and you’ll notice the delicate embroidery reference celestial bodies, skeletons and other hand-drawn tarot-inspired graphics.

Key pieces included a statement crackled, blue leather coat with intricate skeleton detailing on the back and a red silk dress which incorporated a bridal corset. “I think that’s my favorite piece,” said Clio, referring to the latter. “It’s quite frilly and over-the-top, and it shows a lot of thigh – it’s a piece that really reflects the contrasts in this collection.”

We caught a glimpse into the show’s making, as the models were prepped and primed before heading to the presentation. Fresh, dewy skin was complemented by super-pigmented space-age pink and purple dabbed all over the eye area. Matted hair then added a rough-around-the-edges element to the modern-day femme fatale collection.
