Some forms of art are meant to reflect the reality of the times, other art is meant to offer an escape from it. For Fall/Winter 2017, London designer Mimi Wade is offering an escape route, and we’re following right along.
Taking inspiration from old school uniforms, The Pink Panther and his cartoon friends, and magic mushrooms, Wade sent out a collection that was cheeky and fun—precisely what daydreams are meant to be. Plush clouds adorned metallic blue dresses and sweaters, tulle ruffles were sewn onto shoulders and hemlines, and ostrich feathers finished off elbow length gloves.
It is often said that as you get older, it’s important to protect your inner child, and Wade is doing just that. Think of it as dress up of the adult variety, perfect for your next tea party—just make sure it’s spiked.
