A Richard Quinn show has one expecting a bit of romantic florals, a touch of hard core edge, bold colors, and latex—and Quinn came through on all of the above in his Fall 2020 range. The show felt more like a wedding, complete with guests, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, a live performance, confetti, and a bride in an embroidered hijab. Quinn’s signature latex masks, coordinated printed tights, and knack for embroidery was on full display, firstly in menswear (new for the brand), and then in voluminous poofs and ’80s-inspired minis. And yet with all the pops of color, florals, S&M, and bridal references, the show felt Quinn-tessentially British at the same time.
Perhaps it was the cheeky nods to England throughout the collection, like embroidery reading “God Save The Quin” on the back of Quinn’s opening menswear look. The collection, overall, brought some serious looks but reminded us all that nothing—even #fashun—should be taken too seriously.
