His latest Fall/Winter 2014 collection presented at London Fashion week was nothing short of amazing. The garments were at their sleekest and the deep purples to blue hues throughout the runway presentation painted a chic F/W visual. His last collection took inspiration from the portrayal of women in the Renaissance-era with paintings by Lucas Cranach the elder. With plenty of leather binding corsets tied into perfectly tailored dresses, then flowing into beautiful laser cut designs, the references to the Renaissance-era was quite prevalent.
