Runway Rundown: Sadie Williams Served Folk Art Disco [LFW]
Layers of lamé, sequins and velour gave way for this season’s 1970s-era celebration of folk art on the disco floor, with Sadie Williams’ hallmark hues and shimmering fabrics adding to the overall visual. While some looks were embellished with Swarovski crystals, others boasted abstract jewel-like motifs. But the main takeaway of the collection was the queen of the dance floor–the tomboy beauty in an allover sequined hoodie layered underneath a red-and-blue striped dress.
Since graduating in 2013, this up-and-coming designer has continued to build a rather solid name for herself, thanks to her innovative textiles and elevated pattern work. This season, she further explored traditional craftsmanship with far-from-traditional fabrics, adding in disco stripes and flares for extra dimension/authenticity. Complete with sweaters emblazoned with abstract hand-collaged prints (and then turned quilt-like style moments), this collection is pure British sports-luxe at its greatest, as well as something you can actually wear.
