The mainstream and short-order exhibition’s key looks in a nutshell.
Back to the 1970s
Glamorous and sophisticated colours, fabrics and silhouettes give this trend more than a hint of the Studio 54 vibe. Deep reds and purples are set off by gold and orange across evening dresses such as this from B Young and suits, Van Gils in this instance, while luxurious velvets, sequins and silks add class. Whether wearing rollnecks or killer heels, these playboys and girls are set to shine.
A free-spirited 1960s feel comes through with a reworking of classic British colours and fabrics, giving new life to old favourites. Burgundy, auburn and mustard sit alongside tartan, employed by Bosweel, print (Ivan Grundahl’s, being particularly apt) and tweed in a boyish, boho look full of quirky skirts and chunky knits for women and a modern, smartly tailored mod look for men.
Youthful and fun, this trend has a playful sense of quiet rebellion mixed with subtle sophistication. Dainty pastels are saved from being saccharine by the use of acid tones and puffed-up silhouettes (see Astrid Andersen’s down jacket), in ultra-light materials. Elegant soft skirts and clean shapes from the likes of Lala Berlin are a great foil to the men’s gentlemanliness.
A palette of ocean and sky blues and mountain greys and whites sets the tone for an organic, honest look. Tribal patterns, leather, and soft, flowing lines (as employed by Stine Ladefoged) give the women a cosy, effortless calm, letting men take a performance-enchanced view of the great outdoors with expoloration-style fabrics, as used by Parajumpers.
