Aquascutum Autumn/Winter 2012
Attending the show of Aquascutum was really an experience for the Hunters. We were very excited about the fact we could attend this show during London Fashion Week, because we really like the collections. Before the show, which was organized in the Savoy hotel were we also shot the looks finding neon, we got the opportunity to go backstage. Backstage we had the possibility to take pictures from the models and to ask Antony Turner hair stylist from Toni & Guy about the inspiration for the hairstyle. The Aquascutum woman is provocative, sexy and dangerous. A strong and confident woman, who is not afraid. The hairstyle of the models reinforced this image, the androgynous and masculine look. A smooth blow dry, high on the top and smooth on the side. This strong feeling was also reflected in the make-up. As you might can see on the pictures we took backstage. While walking arount backstage we noticed there were a lot of Dutch models. It was really an experience, to see the preparations before we visited the show. Hunter Linda is a hair model for Toni & Guy and did some shows, it was actually really funny because my hairdresser from Amsterdam was working backstage as well. Hunter Niels spended many hours backstage, when he was a model, but this time, in the role of a hunter it was different. After the backstage part we entered the room where we were located front row to see the show. Like the backstage part was an experience, the show and the collection were impressive as well. The collection was like the Aquascutum woman powerfull, sexy, hard and edgy. Inspired by the military heritage from Aquascutum, which was reflected in the tailored silhouttes, the gray officer’s coats, the jackets cropped over pants from the same material and color like winter white, campagne and olive green. Prominently in the collection were the bondage straps on the trousers and collars and the architectural details like the stipes on the leather coat. An iron collection and amazing show. This is the reason why we have so much love for fashion.
