AW15 Fashion Couples


Both emerging London-based talents, the Agi & Sam guy and the Marques Almeida girl would be a match made in heaven. She’s a little rougher round the edges than him (see the frayed denim hems Marques are known for) while he loves an artfully tailored coat- but they share a passion for colour. He doesn’t mind that she’s a little wild. Block colour or prints, this couple don’t shy away from clothes that pack a colourful punch.



Saint Laurent hearts Christopher Kane

Heidi Slimane’s Saint Laurent man is the coolest guy at the party. He has that slightly untouchable air about him – he’s probably in a band. He’s wild and lives life on the edge. Rocking around in Slimane’s super skinny leather trousers, cropped printed jackets and ‘don’t-give-a-fuck’ leather/fur coats, this guy also happens to be with the coolest girl at the party – the Christopher Kane girl. She’s not a flesh-flasher, she doesn’t need to show off any skin. She’s sex on legs! Next season she’ll be donning  the Kane looks covered with sexual drawings, not everyone can pull them off but she sure can.


Christopher Shannon hearts Ashley Williams

This couple don’t shy away from slogans and statements. In fact they both celebrate them. Both collections feature poppy colours on black; Christopher’s boy is making a clear statement about the state of our high street and consumer lifestyles, whereas Ashley’s girl is making a pop culture reference to skaters and Dennis the Menace characters of the 80s/early 90s. He’s politically minded, she’s an avant-garde culture culture – together, it’s one hell of a feisty love affair.


Dior Homme hearts Emilia Wickstead

Kris Van Assche’s Dior Homme man loves sharp tailoring. He and Emilia Wickstead’s stylishly ladylike gal are a match made in heaven. Where do they meet? Opening night at the Opera, the Met Ball or any fabulous event that requires you to really be ‘Somebody’. Although both take pleasure in luxurious elegance, neither are afraid to add in a fashion-forward touch. For Dior Homme I’m talking about the badges on each lapel and the leather drawstring trousers. Over at Emilia Wickstead it was flagged by the black PVC long coat – demure and suggestive at the same time. This couple also share a love of tartan. Emilia’s amber-coloured, heavy fabric, pleated dress with chocker-style collar is perfection.
