Dresses made from hair, and other dark things: Kathryn Beker

Where to begin? The Gothic romanticism, the plays of feminine and masculine, the studs and spikes and silk and feathers, the dress made of human hair? When it comes to Kathryn Beker the influences of a collection are always manifold, the techniques always complex. Because there’s no singlar story but many disparate inspirations, you can view the same collection over and again, and each time…

The modern day Lady

The phrase Lady of the Manor immediately calls to mind a particular type of woman. We might imagine her in full skirts, walking her dogs or weaving tapestries fireside while being waited on by a bustling staff of servants. But in the Middle Ages, when the Lord of the Manor was away serving his King, the Lady’s role was far more involved. She was in…

When Freud, Klimt, and Greek mythology collide

Kathryn Beker‘s 2012 collection can’t be pinned to one single inspiration. Instead a handful of complimentary influences swirl together like the blended notes of a fragrance: cultural, historical, environmental. The collection is titled Eros & Thanatos after the Greek God of Love and demonic personification of Death respectively. It gets Freudian right about here: Freud’s belief that human behaviour is motivated by the instinctual drives…

Away from the costume party

When bringing a 20s flapper look into the now there are no set rules but one: it can’t look too costumed. While it’s fun to swan about with a cigarette holder in one hand an a jewel-encrusted headband circling your forehead, that kind of thing only works with authenticity and plenty of attitude behind it. Otherwise, you should save it for the fancy dress party.…

Kathryn Beker’s space odyssey

It didn’t take me long to discover that Kathryn Beker is a girl after my own heart. In fact you could pinpoint it down to the moment where, in discussions about her transparent raincoats for Mimco, she forwarded me the clip from Blade Runner where Zhora pounds the dystopian city pavements in her thigh-high boots and clear plastic mac, only to be mercilessly shot down…

Mimco’s clear coats: an update

When I revealed my not-so-secret love of the clear plastic coats that went down Mimco’s VAMFF (Melbourne fashion festival) runway, it didn’t take long for other like-minded individuals to share their similar sentiments. And in fact all the questions that came my way centered on one thing: where to buy one? So here’s an update: the designer of the plastic coats and dresses was actually…
