Baartmans and Siegel SS 2013

Mr Baartmans and Ms Siegel were shrewd in their venue choice this season, being as it was directly opposite the Hospital Club, the main hub for the menswear shows.  A large hangar area, I'd never been to a show there before, and it allowed them to construct a long podium used for the presentation – something like a static travelator, updated with a new model every few minutes.

The clothes were just as luxe as we've come to expect from Baartmans and Siegel. Intricate knits, suits textured with a glistening 'scale' and statement accessories like the humungous pale blue croc-skin bag. The styling may not be to my taste – silk scarves, visors and tucked-in tops scream gay golfing holiday a little too loudly – but there were many individual pieces to lust after.  Just need someone to invite me to the Prom so I can wear that powder blue suit...
