Sportswear + Perspex + lilac dyed hair = Simon Ekrelius' SS11 collection. Momonchrome featured heavily and was perfectly matched by identikit models with glazed expressions and robotic walks. Overall the collection was rather vertiginous, with huge millinery and pointed shoulders with impressive height. Sheer chiffons added a voyeuristic element, but things were taken to the next level with Perspex and completely sheer jumpsuits not you standard Saturday night on the tiles kind of clobber. One model only had a tiny triangle of flesh coloured fabric to hide what little modesty she had left. Now that takes guts.
