Lukas "FUTURE SHOCK_womachines" at FWA
When LUKAS emailed me his FUTURE SHOCK_womachines collection manifesto while announcing his show date on Friday October 15th in Fashion Week Athens, he wasn't kidding:
Edgy, fresh, innovative, sexy, avant-garde
5 words that describe exactly the Spring Summer Collection.
This season it's about power+control.
LUKAS woman is determined to conquer everything.
An edgy collection with futuristic touch, provocative and austere.
Luxurious fabrics, innovative details, new proportions.
For all today's amazons. Remember:
"What shocks u today, is tomorrow's trend!"
The show started on time, which was unheard of during previous seasons, meaning there were a lot of late comers and quite a few empty seats. What a pity for such a great show.
On the bright side, the models weren't stick-thin, a fact that empowered the whole concept of a strong, feminine ideal. I also loved the idea of clear protective goggles (like the ones used by workers handling machinery) as alternative eye wear.
And most importantly, I loved the fact that Lukas seems both focused in his personal vision of a strong, sexy and feminine woman and at the same time he has definitely improved and moved forward since his last show in March. Bravo Lukas!
