Romance Was Born meets Marvel Comics

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week started off to a colourful start this morning kicking off the first show of the week with Romance Was Born. The collection was inspired by comic Superheros of the 60s and the comic book art of Jack Kirby.
While the theme was surreal, the execution was amazing - resulting in quirky, yet wearable pieces. Who would have thought possible!
They partnered with Marvel Comics and the RWB design duo (Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales) have managed to turn a collaboration that wasn’t fashion or beauty related into a stunningly beautiful and innovative collection without being an obvious plug to the brand. Genius!

The simple, sophisticated, yet pop-up graphic backdrop created a change to the extravagance from past collections and they managed to avoid the theme turning tacky and cartoonish. The collection featured mixed textures, cinched waists, full hips and strong shoulders. The fire red flame hair was created by the talented Alan White and we thought it added a nice final touch.

Really, who doesn’t secretly wish they were a Superhero...
We can't wait to see what the rest of the week will bring.

Love, Pink Ink X
