How did these doughnuts magically get into my bag? is probably the only use of ‘magical’ I’d use in a LFW context, we seem to be more content with nouns like edgy, unorthodox, and sometimes even what-the-wow in London, but you must agree Paris couture unofficially owns ‘magical’. Giles sent out a fringed silver mask invitation in an A3 envelope, which made the official mirror of the day and gave the Somerset House restrooms a breather, but what a tease! I’d expected something along the lines of a Venetian carnival, but the first white swan headpiece floated out on a space-age soundtrack and we all did a Mexican wave of gasps. Swiss laser cutting, featherworks, metallic fringing, and of course the Royal Courts of Justice venue… Je voudrais borrow ‘magical’ s’il vous plait!
