Such stark contrasts in collections could be seen on the S/S 10 Rtw catwalks.
A predominantly nude colour choice at Chloe, Celine and Alexander Wang. With outlandish brights the focus at Proenza Schlouer, and Alexander McQueen.
Hannah MacGibbon at Chloe offered a boyish, partly oversized, colourless palette of beige and neutral shades. Personally it failed to inspire me.
Phoebe Philo at Celine opted for a paired down minimalist assortment in natural tones & cut leathers, with raw wood wedges, and simple scooped back hair.
A clean cut way of dressing, and a breath of fresh air for the runway.
Alexander Wang provided a sport inspired utilitarian selection. Comprised of both bodycon, and oversized pieces in khaki, grey, tan and white. All paired with knee high socks, and open-toed shoes. A personal highlight- oversized messed up fish tail plaits. (I have already been experimenting with!
I have been tracking down the navy and black Alexander Wang diego....fingers crossed.
Acid brights were injected at Proenza Schlouer, adding a sharp sting into an otherwise relaxed surf theme.
While Alexander McQueens oustanding 'Plato's Atlantis' inspired collection featured bold colours, intricate digital patterns, incredible silhouttes, created with folded fabrics, not to mention the highly coveted 12 inch heeled shoes from another life form.
The creations transformed the models into breath-taking reptilian-like species.
I personally feel one of the most outstanding collections i have ever witnessed.
