Retro-futurism was on the brain for Eudon Choi, who called his collection 'Space Oddity', a play on the space-obsessed Bowie of the 1960s and Stanley Kubrick’s cinematic classic ‘2001’. On the runway, Choi reinterpreted the ’60s interpretation of the new millennium, bringing a contemporary hand to the clean lines and shift-shapes of the era. And remember Veruschka, the beautiful seductress who made love to David Thomas's camera during a fashion shoot in Antonioni’s ‘Blow-Up’? Well the iconic 1960s model was at the fore of Choi's mind, too. Her mod vibe lent itself to sleek cocoon coats, cigarette pants, geometric block patterns and shiny PVC leathers, deftly cut into oversized boxy tops and jackets. This may be just the second on-schedule London Fashion Week show for the Korean-born designer, but if his fashion-forward collection is anything to go by, his future's looking bright.
