Amanda Wakeley is the LFW drapery queen and today was no exception. Jewel tones of mustard, turquoise, red, coral and dove grey, alongside navy and black made up a rich palette and followed suit to emerging colour trends.
Asymmetric dresses, draped from jewelled neck pieces and long line silhouettes that sat close to the body at the front billowed from back straps as models trooped down the catwalk.
There were several kaftan style dresses too in silk prints including a monochrome print and a beautiful yellow and grey print. The final print in the collection was a thick russian red and white stripe that was fresh and summery.
Armholes were draped round and day dresses in navy silk were draped and pinned at the back creating soft and rounded silhouettes. Wakeley used partially hidden belts to cinch waists of column dresses creating extra draping. Several backs had cut outs that then flowed into more gathered skirts.
The collection was sharp, modern and incorporated chic day wear and elegant maxi dresses that Wakeley is known for. Coming to a red carpet near you soon.
