Todd Lynn - London Spring 2009
(LONDON) Todd Lynn's Spring 2009 collection, "Devour the Divine," took its inspiration from the thirties and forties, particularly the film The Day of the Locust, which tells the tale of a group of Hollywood wannabes in 1938. Progressive fabric choices--glazed bamboo, lacquered cotton, vintage paper leather and silk net give the collection a futuristic slant. Same with the variations on the basic tuxedo jacket, which was reworked as a biker style, a feather-embossed double-breasted spencer and a tailcoat in the season's palette of smoke, antler and raspberry. The final dress was entirely made of plumage in shades of grey, with an exaggerated feather bustle. Suzy Menkes and Plum Sykes sat front row.
