Watching the Lela Jacobs show at New Zealand Fashion Week was a multi sensory experience. Lit with hanging lightbulbs to match those in her Auckland boutique The Keep we watched a show that was not only showcasing her 2015 A/W collection, but was telling a story of things lost and learned and positivity towards the future. Titled Post Dystopian the collection was focused around a list of things lost, these items were chanted to us through music and displayed as handwritten scrawl across sheer silks. The makeup for the show was striking ( these photos don't do it justice) and models eyes glowed alive, we were mesmerised as they passed us at slow pace. The collection was true to Jacob's signature aesthetic, trans-seasonal, unisex layered pieces in linen and silks and hand knit wools casually draped, a collection of collaboration having listed help of various friends and artisans for special pieces. Although Lela's style is not my personal style I still love it, and her show was one of the most memorable due to her careful consideration of all details.
