PA5H’s debut catwalk show at London Fashion Week saw both male and female models strut the runway. Denim shirts, jeans, and jackets were deconstructed with cut-out panels and raw edges, while sweaters are simply slashed in half. Belts and straps fill in the gaps, creating looks that are half structural and half bondage-wear.

By contrast, some pieces are structured and layered, with corset shapes creating a form from which the rest of the garment flows full-length. Torn-off strips of denim become chokers and bracelets in other looks.

A major motif through the latter part of the collection is a black and white chequered pattern, peeking out on a bralet or loud and proud on a skirt, paired with red flashes.
