Sequinned sportswear and ponies vomiting rainbows might not seem like the most obvious choice for an AW15 show, but Fyodor Golan embraced it in full force with Rainbow Wheel. Showcasing a collaboration with My Little Pony that is about as subtle as a brick to the small of your back makes for a powerful, fun and completely psychedelic collection.
For the most part, we’re talking sports silhouettes adapted and modernised for a modern and girly presentation. Boxy shapes and wide cut sleeves paired with sky-high neon green platform boots and latex thigh high makes sure Rainbow Wheel hits all those nostalgia keynotes with a grown up twist. Pink and red together are always going to rank highly for me and Rainbow Wheel is pure, unadulterated eye candy. Sequin pink gowns finished with a jersey detail and baseball jumpers with quilted arms and cartoon faces makes for a collection that plays at either end of the spectrum from tomboy to super uber femme at the drop of a hat. The neon rainbow palette was delightfully garish and worked wonderfully, especially with the embroidered and crystal detailing throughout. It’s a divisive show, but fashion should make you feel something and Rainbow Wheel is high-octane sugar high delight.
And let’s face it, My Little Pony: so hot right now.
