During LFW a phenomenal designer catapulted onto my radar and HOLY SMOKE A LAND SAKES ALIVE - I am obsessed. Here's Mimi Wade's delightfully whimsical AW17 collection to which Mimi ponders "without realising I've designed an alternative to my school uniform". If this was my school uniform, I would've joined an after school club just so I could wear it an extra hour!
Does this dress remind anyone else of the iconic Toy Story wallpaper? Just me?
"At school, the uniforms were so ugly that everyone would put their dark green skirts on a boil wash in the machine 20 times over just so they would become more attractive, pale, blue-y turquoise." MW
Fellow Pink Panther fans will spot his iconic paw prints and adorable Inspector Clouseau buttons.
I adore this Dial M For Mimi crop jumper, taking inspiration from Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder and Pink Panther's Dial P for Pink.
In case you were curious about what lies beneath...
My left or yours? ;-)
From the glitter knee socks to the garish orange blusher - this show had it all.
I've since done some digging and discovered Mimi's Hollywood horror AW16 collection. I particularly love her bullet hole satin trousers - inspired by a Japanese Bonnie & Clyde poster, no less - and her devil girl from Mars party dress. New Tinder bio?
The set looked pretty snazzy too, I must say. LOVE the Mimi Wade director chair! Here is the lady herself, showing LOVE magazine around her atelier aka her mum's front room.

I am captivated and already craving SS18! In the meantime, what am I to do, to do, to do, to do to do to do to do to doooooo ;-)
