While the men’s shows were held back in June, the latest ready to wear looks have hit the runway. How did the women’s garments compare to their male counterparts in London? Let’s take a look back and see how they match what has sauntered down the catwalk this week.
Bright, energetic and unique colors frequented Christopher Bailey’s latest collection for Burberry Prorsum. When one thinks of Burberry, it’s the signature trench that comes to mind, but these looks bring a certain level of funkiness to the traditional take on British fashion. Similar colors and fabrics were used in both shows, creating a consistent pop of flavor in business and formal wear. Some may be jarring, but the initial shock of electricity leaves a jolt in our pulses.
Pringle of Scotland
Rugged and tattoo-ridden male models traveled down the runway in the men’s spring shows for Pringle of Scotland. Their looks resemble a schoolboy gone rogue; rebelling against their proper roots with airs of punk in their attire. Attention-grabbing prints keep the eye looking as well in the cable-knit sweaters and separates. The transition between muted pastels and hints of bold blues carried over into the women’s looks too. Their dainty, ‘60s inspired attire is embellished by similarly striking prints and jewels. Both looks are filled with contrasts — delicate and dainty, punk and demure – making Pringle of Scotland an edgy contender to watch.
Streamline precision mixed with a sportswear flair create a captivating mixture to behold in Australian-born Richard Nicoll’s collection. Added with striking whites and easy to wear, but eye-catching silhouettes in his men’s collection, Nicoll marks precision in his ability to create practical but provocative garments. This carried over into the women’s collection which featured more looks to behold. Saturated yellows and aquas mix well within the grey bases of the shoes and accents.
