This show began with some very sport luxe pieces amplified by the peaked visors that the collection was styled with. A first interesting piece was a plaid maxi shirt in the menswear which was different but an obvious development considering how many maxi shirts we have seen in the womenswear so far.
High shine fabrics were common worn with sporty leather jackets and some relaxed tailored pieces including long shirt dresses for the women with structured, sleeveless shoulders. This collection had a grungy deconstructed edge and was accessorised with rubber band cuffs that zipped through the inside arm. The deconstruction continued subtly withstructured organza in brush stroke prints, the silhouette that was loose and boyish was altered by this structuring that occasionally widened from the waist but usually from above or below.
Menswear also featured shorts/skirts that were shorts on either the back or front and a skirt on the other… these were interesting… especially when a dressing error meant that a pair fell down on the run way.
