We jumped off the bus straight and ran straight into our first show of the season. Twenty minutes late – the show, not us – not bad not bad. For the first half, we were treated to a muted palette with lots of white which still weirdly feels right as winter hasn’t yet drawn in. The models had hair piled up on the top of their heads and ankle length white socks.
All very prim and proper until the swinging skirts and the flouncy shoulders came out. A stripy monochrome smock here and retsrictive white lace there but then we even got some fuchsia in the menswear. Some of the outfits were a lesson in how to wear period drama era bed sheets, in a good way – others just beautifully wearable.
