Australian Fashion Week 2014: N.L.P SS14/15 at MBFWA

N.L.P didn’t present a collection, it presented a tribe. There’s no frail waifs, just a band of powerful Amazonians. Or you could describe them as low-budget Avatars with post-Woodford folk festival hair. N.L.P dancers took to the stage with a fierce animalistic performance, surely making their Instagram legions swoon. N.L.P is still presenting the same kind of neoprene bathing pieces that shot them to success – with the likes of Beyoncé and Jourdan Dunn donning their suits. But Nikki Lee Penny’s togs are becoming more progressive with strap detailing and a greater appropriation of clothing and swimwear design. If anything, the label seems a little stagnant. But if it ain’t broke, right?
