2 of 2: Meadham Kirchhoff

The second part of the BFC double-act, Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff also focussed on structured tailoring and a modern aggressive and even predatory femininity. The pieces that best summed this up - coincidentally the best pieces in their collection - were brief tailored jackets in firm double-face wool jersey, intricately seamed like an Elizabethan doublet with emphatic shoulders and articulated elbows, forming a post-modern armour for woman. Elsewhere lines were soft and flowing in chiffon, cashmere and feather-light mohair, with the long-neglected maxi skirt a common sighting, perhaps softening the more aggressive corners of the duo's vision.
