The audience was charmed by design duo Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong’s wearable approach toward draping and pleating, using moveable jersey fabrics and a simple colour palette of black, white and sapphire.
With muted colours and simple textiles, the show ran the risk of lacking distinction, but statement accents like zany headpieces, zipper and eyelet details, and cut-out necklines upheld the collection’s fascination. Being the Studio 54 junkie I am, I took a natural liking to the Grecian and jersey wrap dresses, and the standout white flared pantsuit. Some of the cocktail dresses in the collection harnessed a very Lanvin or Balenciaga-esque, Parisian dichotomy between strength and sexiness. These cocktail dresses, often with striking, detailed backs, were not just the show’s strength, but retail gold as well. Check out my video of the show’s finale above, and photos below.
