Hexa by Kuho - Paris Fashion Week SS14

Under the burning catwalk lights in a dank warehouse space the Hexa Collection took to the runway. Sport influences were a theme throughout the entire collection - tight tailored shorts with geometric panelling bridged the difference between casual and chic. The press release, offered some insight to the look of style feminine warrior. Using strong structure, it's base in Traditional Korean costume, the collection came to life. Plastic armour was donned, tight at the waist and the nude tones adding a subtle femininity to the show. 
Opening with all white the palette moved through jet black, bright lilac and navy before finishing with khaki tones decorated with gold foil. 
The feminine  themes were emphasised with the use of a traditional flower motif that also formed delicate nubs on the 'armour'. 
Wide set shoulders and elegant cut out arm holes added to the sporting feel as well as the use of mesh panels, net and utilitarian fabrics. 

The hair in this show was beautifully crafted with two tight twists along the head holding a plastic hair band in place, dropping between the eyes and again adding to the warrior chic.

The final pieces with the enhanced femininity were stunning, especially flowing maxi skits with thigh high splits and severe pleating.

A fabulous collection that only occasionally verged on a little wintry.
