The show started, appropriately enough, with the roar of Formula One cars echoing around the room, instantly creating the right ambience for the clothes on display. SEEN is pleased to report that they combine a vintage 90s feel with startlingly modern textures and juxtapositions. Flares were instantly updated by exaggerating the cut, giving a lovely swing when the models walked. In fact, SEEN would say that about the whole show; many garments just moved so beautifully.

The use of vinyl textiles and light wool gave the collection a luxe feel whilst ensuring the clothes fitted like second skin; there were nods here and there to punk with bondage style embellishments. Black, white and red featured along with denim accents and bold mesh textures. The stand-outs for SEEN in womenswear, were a stunning top with beading dripping from one shoulder and a beautiful metallic mesh skirt.

A clever use of cut-out denim ensured that while PA5H was unafraid to pay homage to urban street style, it was also not about to take itself too seriously, giving the denim-accented pieces a playfulness that is refreshing to see in such a charged week of shows.

Menswear was represented with monochromatic leisure wear and bold urban streetwear that had a clearly sporty edge to it, while still being smart enough to wear at any non-sport event. This was encapsulated by a stunning hand-beaded bomber jacket.

PA5H’s founder, Dasha Pashevkina, continues to collaborate with creatives blurring the lines between fashion, art, video and styling in pursuit of a signature sports luxe aesthetic, yet adding a fresh and sexy playfulness that counteracts and updates the vintage masculinity that inspired it.

SEEN doesn’t often venture into bustling Broadgate Circle (just behind Liverpool Street Station) but feels she must amend this situation in the future. Amid a welter of eateries from the extremely fashionable to the cheerfully cheap sits the excellent Crab Tavern, which, like many restaurants in London manages to give local office workers and hungry travellers an inexpensive yet fine dining experience.
