LFW: Backstage and catwalk at Eugene Lin AW13

Once again, London Fashion Week seems to have come and gone in the blink of an eye! On Monday morning, I headed back to Freemason Hall, this time to go backstage and watch the new AW13 Cupide de locke collection from Singaporean born designer Eugene Lin:

Compared to Saturday, the atmosphere was a lot calmer backstage. I managed to grab 5 minutes with head make up artist Lan Nguyen-Grealis who described the look as modern, edgy and war like. In keeping with Eugene Lin's structured collection, lashings of Kohl liner were used on the eyelids, then patted over with the new Colour crush eyeshadow in Moonlight kiss. Finally gold leaf was used in the inner corner to make the whole look grittier and more edgy.

I also snapped a photo of the models getting their nails done, and I have to say I love their take on a French manicure. Gold and black goes together so well, and I'll definitely be giving this striking combination a go!

Fashion wise, Eugene Lin AW13 very structured, and in keeping with the war like them, some of the pieces were almost military in design. The use of raspberry and gold kept the overall look feminine though. There were some beautiful dresses, and judging by his collection, trench coats and gold studs are back and here to stay for AW13.

What do you think about the new collection? Will you be recreating any of the make up/nails from this show?
