Falguni & Shane Peacock AW11

Falguni & Shane Peacock's AW catwalk show was held at On/Off's new venue in Covent Garden's Mercer St Studios and though the dreary London rain was putting a downer on our mood, we had no doubt that Falguni and Shane's collection would live up to their exotic last name.

Featuring their signature use of embellishments and animal prints, the Peacock's toughened up their act with panelled bodysuits which gave a nod to AW's impending sci-fi trend. Of course, there was the usual selection of beautifully designed dresses, featuring heavy embroidery and feathers, but by adding accessories like dangerously cool spiked leather gloves to the mix, Falguni & Shane ensured that whilst still in touch with their habit of making exquisite evening-wear, they still know how to shake things up a little.
