you're just like plasticine
- Meadham Kirchhoff nail wraps & topshop lipstick in "Mischief"
- M'K article in Dazed and Confused
Since laying eyes on their Spring'12 collection I've fallen head over heels in love with Meadham Kirchhoff (if you could bottle genius, they'd be selling it by the truckload.) Given, they're not to everybody's taste, and don't get me wrong I used to think they were off-the-wall crazy, but if madness is genius and all that, then they're straight up boffins (oh love that word; boffin, boff-boff-boffin)
Amongst the wild array of crochet, pastels and girlish whimsy I couldn't help but detect a sense of playful irony. A lot of people have been raving about the Marie Antoinette inspired pieces, but I found one of the garments seemed to have a slightly different muse - (*que dorky game show voice)
"it's your favourite frenemy, and mine; Regina George!" Now I'm not saying this is necessarily what the dynamic duo were channelling when designing, but you've gota admit, the resemblance is uncanny....
Oh it's like so totally fetch, right?? (sorry, couldn't help myself :P) Anybody else feel a dyer urge to go watch Mean Girls now? haha, Anywhoo, fashion week's coming up and I can't wait to see what the Meadham Kirchhoff crew have got to offer - which shows are you looking forward to?
