Smiley continued its long-standing tradition of keeping a ‘Smile is always in style’ on the runway at this weeks London Fashion Week, with the launch of the latest licensed collection from uber stylish London accessories designer Anya Hindmarch. This is the second season the designer has featured Smiley in its catwalk show.
The AW14 show, which took place on Tuesday 18th February 2014 in front of the cream of London’s hipster community at Billingsgate Hall and was appropriately titled ‘COUNTER CULTURE’, received critical acclaim from the fashion press. Inspired by treating the everyday ordinary in an extraordinary way, Hindmarch took Supermarket conveyor belts and household items, such as cereal boxes, crisps packets and washing powder boxes, to the catwalk in a playful take on everyday life. The show paid homage to some of the UK’s leading icons from supermarket shelves, whilst the finale was played out to ‘Get Happy’ by Judy Garland and featuring printed silk Smiley scarves and chic leather Smiley tote bags, to ensure a really good-feeling end to one of the highlight shows of AW14 London Fashion Week. Smiley’s continued presence on the catwalk and the amazing press that has followed ensures the Smiley brand remains a must have trend in global fashion today.
