Leave it to the British to channel East London cemeteries and make the reference chic for their fashion shows! Geoffrey J. Finch, the man behind Antipodium, did just that and delivered a line-up that, given this inspiration, was much more civilian than one might expect.
Because the fashion label is very young, it will take a few trial runs to establish a distinct identity. We know that London Fashion Week is raising its profile, so such creative experimentation can only be beneficial.

The Brits love their quirky color combinations, their unexpected and unapologetic eccentricities, and their punk heritage; so, it comes without surprise that some of these quirks would be on the Antipodium runway for all to see.
At the end of the day, Antipodium delivered looks that were cosmopolitan, sophisticated and edgy, if slightly safer than we anticipated. From thin knits to key wardrobe separates, the looks will undoubtedly appeal to a wide-ranging clientele.
Of course, the fur nods didn’t go unnoticed. The accessories are loads of fun; they are en par with the global trend for scarves and gloves, mittens. We particularly liked the fox patchwork, especially as a lining. The texture is very rich and interesting and feels very young.
Antipodium may be in its infancy (it’s barely a year old), but it shows great potential. Congratulations on a good début!
