The look This was new creative director Yvan Mispelaere’s first collection after the departure of Nathan Jenden and the show was big and bold on prints, which made a statement in a bright and zingy, sometimes clashing palette.
Key pieces Loosely buttoned blouses and sheath dresses were unstructured and the collection fluid. The emphasis was on colour and print, with blown-out tessellating graphics dominating cropped trousers and shorts, along with tailored jackets with structured shoulders.
Colours Clashing colours ensured this show’s palette stood out from the general colour trend. Chocolate brown sat against turquoise, mint and lime green, as well as more subtle maroon and violet.
Commercial appeal The palette and prints were very distinctive and set this collection apart. The most commercial print was the jigsaw-piece pattern in chocolate browns.
