On an empty stage, the velvet curtains part to reveal in the spotlight the lifelike puppet swaying gently in Joseph's tartan pleats and Uniqlo stripes.
Eye's snapping open, she comes to life as ribbons tug at her ankles commanding the Marni sandals to stomp into life, their gems and jewels flashing. The puppeteer pulls at the strings to coerce the little puppet into a dance swinging the soft chiffon of the skirt.
The dainty prettiness of this look with the rosy cheeks and ribbon headband is cut with a tougher grungy feel from Joseph's skirt with a flash back to '90s style. Seeking inspiration from youths loitering around Portabello in the mid '90s, Louise Trotter's grunge is given an injection of highland cool. But this isn't unwashed girls in garages. Paired with heels and stripes the look is altogether more grown up while still retaining a spirit of rebellion, even if the puppeteer is pulling the strings.
