If there’s one thing that dominated Krystof Strozyna’s amazing show at London Fashion Week, it was the sharp, blunt, androgynous crop cuts and the glamourous talons. With a collection taking inspiration from iconic POP culture and colours drawn from early summer mornings, Krystof created his SS14 collection for women who love art and especially love wearing it. There was also a massive focus on lips in the collection, with pockets, collars and sleeves all in an abstract lip-shape, but the model’s lips themselves were significantly less defined, letting the do’s dominate the hair and beauty conversation. The wigs, created by Jaga Hupalo, were sleek, almost lacquered but without being plastered to the skull. Though blunt fringes and crop cuts are set to be massive in SS14, it’s a strong look that’s perfect for strong features – but not so much for the rest of us. That’s not to say elements can’t be taken into every day life; blunt bangs and choppy layers are an ideal way to take high fashion onto the high street. The awesome nails, by Zaida Ibrahim-Gani, may be unreasonably long for the rest of us to consider, but the two main colours – canary yellow and opulent white are an easy look to rock when SS14 rolls around.
