Light meets shade for AW 18

Fire and ice characterises our favourite campaigns of AW 18. Anthony Vaccarello’s Saint Laurent offering gives us grime and glamour with an ink black statement heel, while Prada’s neon Americana kitsch keeps the night alive. Erdem is all full skirts and gauze, using light to create a semi-opaque “memory tinged with warmth”, as Steven Meisel for Chloé captures the winter sun on New York’s East River, where time melts like a Dali landscape. Finally, Jacquemus presents Le Souk, ushering in a ‘hot winter’, starring Frederikke Sofie motorcycling in those iconic heels. Everything is not as it seems.
