Two days ago, in London, I went to the first catwalk show for a new brand called MEAT. The girl behind this exciting new brand is Boadicea Claridge. Her first collection entitled « I luv you » was shown at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club… which was a very good choice since this club has a very kitschy gigantic illuminated heart for a stage decoration.
Approximately one hundred people crowded the show. Some ” Internet famous”London fashion heads like photographer Alis Pelleschi, designer Roberto Piqueras, Carri Mudane from Cassette Playa and Namalee the founder of Super Super magazine attended the event. Everyone was so incredibly well-dressed and colorful, the crowd was almost as exciting as the show.
MEAT offers a curious mix between latex fetish outfits, which usually are a bit dark and a very Kawaii/ Barbie/ My Little Pony aesthetic. Associating latex with any aesthetic other than BDSM is a pretty difficult challenge. I can report Boadicea certainly succeeded! MEAT is a bit like if your little sister suddenly decided to dress like a “LATEX PRINCESS.” I particularly had a crush on the transparent latex dress with dolphin print.
The singer Azelia Banks is one of the first celebrities to wear the brand but sooner than later, you’ll see MEAT worn by Katy Perry and Gaga. Taking a look at the MEAT website is worth it if you like the “3D babe” aesthetic. You can definitely feel the influence of Alis’ style on the website.
