STAR WARS AT FASHION WEEK EPISODE II: Preen Strikes Back

London Fashion Week is in full swing and there’s more geeky goodness from Preen following on from Rodarte’s show at New York Fashion Week.

Separate fashion houses Rodarte and Preen had the same Star Wars theme in both their AW14 collections?! Shocking. Like Rodarte, Preen have rummaging around and found a few images from the franchise to use in their latest collection.

This time round, it’s Vader’s wonderful shiny face which is slapped onto pretty dresses, with 70s silhouettes merged with kaleidoscopic prints. I still don’t class printing a photo onto a garment as setting a ‘trend’ though. I see it as a short cut when designing clothes. The other difference between the two shows is that Preen had Storm Troopers hanging around backstage and supposedly showing guests to their seats. POINTS.
