It’s no secret that words are my jam, so, the inspiration behind Simon Mo’s SS20 collection was author Paul Bogards and his legendary work; “The End of Night”.
The lofty parallels drawn by the designer conveyed his innovation, evolution and the change being felt throughout the LFW shows as well as Mo’s idea of holding an insomniac party for all humans, animals and plants wandering through the night.
This season’s key focus is classic pyjama silhouettes, neon trimmings, contrasting colours and cuts paired with vintage blanket prints and dramatic star prints made from recycled yarn, all topped off with printed metallic gauzes to resemble the halo of light so often associated with angelic beings. The collection aims to bring alive the serious threats posed to nocturnal wildlife, plant life and human insomnia which have been created through artificial light pollution in the modern world.
