Better late than never? Somehow the beautiful Tata-Naka presentation, maybe my favourite of London’s AW12 shows, ended up the last thing I edited and uploaded months later. Happily it almost coincides with the actual season it’s meant for, so let’s just pretend it was due to strategic planning of my editorial calendar. You can now pre-order most of the collection, which gives me another excuse to do oohing and aahing over all the mesh cutout pieces, especially the yellow/lilac combo that might be my absolute favourite. The prints are jolly great too.
The presentation doubled as their look book shoot, photographed by Natalia Alaverdian, hence the eyes-to-other-camera. Mad props to Chameleon Visual who completely transformed the same old Portico Rooms at Somerset House into something incredible (if a little intense when filled with people / pina coladas) in the space of about an hour.
