Ever since I heard Georgia Hardinge would be creating a collection for River Island’s Design Forum I’ve been desperate to get my hands on a few pieces. I then saw the short film released during London Fashion Week & learned that the capsule collection of 14 pieces was inspired by H.R. Gigers paintings & sculptures. I don’t usually do print, but being the huge sci-fi nerd that you all know I am & the fact the prints reminded me of the Xenomorphs from the Alien series (one of Gigers creations) had me sold immediately!

I finally bagged these leggings & also the t-shirt dress in the same print, I wanted to get the pale grey pleated neoprene dress too, but talked myself out of it, knowing I wouldn’t get much wear from it with it being so pristinely pale & me being so messy! Practicality is a huge aspect of why I wear mostly black.

I kept the rest of the look simple, pairing them with my favourite, worn to death Todd Lynn for Topshop tux & my handmade skirt. I’m wearing this skirt more & more recently, the little details like the notches make all the difference to an otherwise plain skirt & the stretch twill I made it from is the most lovely fabric, I really need to buy some more & make a few more things with it!

    Seriously…you are the only person that i know that can rock leggings like that. they are so bad ass…but I’d look so weird in them. I feel odd enough sometimes in my snake skin print pants. Love the whole look as always.

    I love to find subtle ways to work in sci-fi/geek/nerd references into my outfits. It’s like an inside joke, a secret signal to the likeminded.

    Beautiful, as always! x

      Yes, me too! It’s the best when you’re walking around wearing something with a subtle geeky reference & you see other nerds spot it & smile at you! :)

    I didn’t pick you for a sci fi geek haha. LOVE the print on those leggings though, it’s so unusual, Can’t wait to see the matching tee you got xx

      Haha, really?! I’m such a nerd – sci-fi, video games, comics, anime .etc I’m obsessed with it all! I used to be kinda embarrassed of it, but now I embrace my geekyness! ;) Will hopefully get the dress photographed soon! :)

    I love this collection, I was so close to buying that dress you’re talking about for my birthday but it just didn’t look right, was gutted! Your skirt is gorgeous too, I love the detail xxx

      I could have brought everything from it I swear, it’s soo good! Sucks that the dress didn’t look right on you though, hope you got something just as awesome instead! :)

    wow, those leggings give me a mixed feeling… the pattern is somewhere between a skeleton and a mermaid tail. The upper part of the outfit is impecable as usual though :)

    i love that notched skirt steph, haha totally stealing your idea if i get around to making another. small detail but so so good.. and those leggings are amazing. i can’t stop looking at the print and wish i’d known about them sooner. i love giger’s work and that print is definitely xenomorph-ish.. so mesmerising i can see why you like them so much :)

      Haha! Feel free! ;) I always think it’s the little details that make all the difference. I’m a big fan of his too & know what you mean about the print, when they arrived I spent ages prancing around in front of my mirror looking at them! Hah!

    Wow, these leggings are amazing, I love the print! You’ve now tempted me to buy the maxi dress, so amazing.

    O_O these are eyes of utter amazement! Holy crap those printed leggings are amazing-beyond amazing, I don’t think there are any actual words for what I’m trying to articulate. Totally lost for words. Not making any sense…

    I love those leggings – you look amazing as always! I just checked out the collection, I love the maxi dress in the same print too. Can’t believe you made your skirt – you’re so talented! And so very stylish xx

    • Posted 13.04.2013 at 5:46 pm | Permalink

      Yes, I was soo tempted by the maxi dress too! Decided to go with the tee-dress & leggings though as I could see myself wearing them much more. Aww, thankyou! :)

    The leggings are amazing! So Alien right? As I’m going into winter you’re blog is great inspiration for a more moody, monochrome wardrobe for the darker days.
