Josh Goot's space cadets

josh goot FW0910/

If Josh Goot seemed to be moving away from his trademark bodycon look over the past few seasons, evidently he’s had a change of heart. In one of his strongest presentations to date, and in his second consecutive London Fashion Week show, overnight Goot sent out a tightly-edited collection of 31 knit-heavy looks - all but four of them cut close to the body. Recalling the retro futurism of the 1960s, the collection was part Mod, via its two-tone, black-on-cream colourblocking - and part sci-fi warrior uniform, courtesy of an intergalactic space print (the inspiration for which, as it turns out, was in fact rocks) and an intriguing series of sculpted garments boasting intricate, wave-like contoured seamwork. Goot cut loose with some oversized, colourblocked boyfriend jackets, the smartest in grey marle and cream. By all Twitter accounts, the show looks to have played to a packed house, with a last minute venue change prompting a chaotic scramble for the front row seats.
