Face Masks and Romanticized BDSM Dominate Richard Quinn's FW20 Show at LFW
A kaleidoscope of dresses & floral prints appear on the runway.
Last weekend, Richard Quinn debuted his Fall/Winter 2020 collection at London Fashion Week featuring his signature designs and silhouettes. Guests were invited to the “House of Quinn” held at the Royal Horticultural Halls that featured a life-size Georgian facade covered in flowers from the ceiling to the ground.
According to Vogue, the show was inspired by the concept of building a house: “If we’re building a house, we need men and women in it. I’m imagining a house with rooms that have all these different people living in these interiors, whether they’re the harsh, dark and sexy S&M ones, or the more romantic ones,” said Quinn.
The show opened with bedazzling haute-couture gemstone looks where the models sported the designer’s signature face masks on the runway. Womenswear transitioned to Quinn’s iconic floral prints arriving in a kaleidoscope of color combinations featured on poofy dresses and bold, stuffed sleeves. As for the men’s looks, the British designer showcased a selection of flared pants, corset-inspired jacquard tank tops, as well as feathered shell tops.
