Having been looking forward to this all week, the time finally arrived for me to get a good look at The Rodnik Band AW12 collection last night at Dreft Fashion week Zagreb. At a glimpse, The Rodnik Band is just a bit of fun. It’s wacky, comical and fabulously British. However, taking a closer look – as I did last night – it quickly becomes apparent that founder, Philip Colbert, is actually making a serious comment about the boundaries of fashion and creative expression.
The Rodnik Band presented a very funny, mock-amateur film clip to exhibit further designs. The clip was largely based around the notion of Kate and Pippa Middleton wearing The Rodnik Band. Two very good look-alikes were filmed meeting Colbert and having to come to terms with wearing his, shall I say, ‘out there’ designs.
Hats off to Philip Colbert for making fashion fun.
