Fashion Sequels: Eugene Lin's LFW Show 'Cupid De Locke'

By Liza Foreman

It isn't just Hollywood blockbusters, even fashion collections have sequels. Witness today's London Fashion Week show from designer Eugene Lin.

His autumn/winter 2013 collection, "Cupid De Locke" is a sequel to his spring/summer 2013 collection "The Judgment of Paris," picking up on Paris’ sojourn to Troy.

The plot line is far more enticing than your average Hollywood fim, thankfully.

"The collection is a modern interpretation and contrasts between the involuntary violence and fragility of love. It is darker, slicker and sharper than the last collection, and features bullet casings as embellishment, along with a shattered glass print," reads the blurb.

Eugene Lin is a trained pattern cutter from Central St Martins. Eugene studied Fashion Design Womenswear before working with Vivienne Westwood and Roksanda Ilincic. He has been featured in Vogue, among other publications.
