A stunning womenswear collection comprised of hyper-feminine silhouettes, adorable prints as well as playful tailoring, with a healthy dose of romantic nostalgia thrown in. The raw textures on fabric felt fresh and modern; the couture shapes and dramatic structures were also awe-inspiring.

The Pantone palette worked brilliantly – pieces in Abundant Green were a particular standout – and ruching, tie details and fringing all featured heavily, as well as lending a youthful vibe to the collection. Hair complements the pieces; perfectly sleek ponytails got a more delicate finish with detailed accents – focal front waving and sculpted curls for a whimsical edge.

Everything about this show felt new and innovative; with a much needed and appreciated focus on experimental design. The abstract forms had an exaggerated structure, with oversized plaits and quilting creating striking futuristic results. Although tailored for men, the collection was diverse and boundary breaking; it has a unisex street wear feel that I just adored.

A beautiful use of colour saw crème de menthe green alongside swim cap blue and black, accentuated with punchy red. The accompanying digital film was refreshing and inspiring, an exciting way to further showcase the bold lines of the pieces.

Hair had an equally unisex feel – a blend of texture and shape. Sleek partings were offset with sharply feathered ends; creating a wearable, undone feel that also echoed the dramatic silhouette of the collection.
