Ed Meadham and Ben Kirchhoff well and truly moved away from their signature gothic aesthetic last season. This season, they met somewhere in the middle with the pretty fabrics and bright colours they favored last season, but also with darker elements like the psychedelic colour matching and painted biker jackets. What I love about Meadham Kirchhoff's collections, is how eclectic they are. This season had me thinking of babushka dolls and ethnic bridal gowns. It is as though they have rummaged through a little girl's dressing up box. The shows are always emotionally charged and as Ed Meadham described them "a visual assault". Downright charming.
