Anya Hindmarch's transformative S/S 2017 set

When it comes to London Fashion Week theatrics, Anya Hindmarch is renowned for her high-tech sets – from flashing lights to moving runways – but this season the designer quite literally broke through her own glass ceiling

Working with set designer Stuart Nunn and Inca Productions, mechanical hydraulics lifted the lid off Anya Hindmarch’s S/S 2017 ‘Circulus’ collection to reveal a spiraling pit-cum-sunken amphitheatre. Models entered and exited from both the centre of the spiral and the top of the set, as its hovering ‘lid’ changed colours like a setting sun, tilting at will.

For the labyrinth-like show’s conclusion, the lid was once again replaced as though Hindmarch’s neoprene coated models’ had succumbed to its geometric void. Videography: Antonio Camera
