Balmain: This collection oozes 90’s funk; think Miami street. The bold colours, The basket weave raffia mini dresses with big shoulders, cropped high rise trousers, leather bras, long jackets, and super cool over-sized hoops. The meticulous attention to detail is out of this world. Thank you Rousteing for delivering as usual. And this time, you hit it out of the ball park. Sigh.. 90’s divas Cindy, Christy and Naomi would be so proud!
Gucci: Channel your 1960’s diva with this gorgeous collection by Gucci. “Aristographic” is what the show notes read, and that is exactly what Frida Giannini presented. The light, feminine ruffles, flowing sleeves, the peaches, the blues, the shades.. Think cote-d’azur retro chic.
Mary Katrantzou: And so with this collection’s simple shapes & intelligent prints (of postage stamps, outdated currency and greek patterns), we have become huge fans of Mary. In ditching tromp l’oeil and sticking to more tailored clean cuts, Mary Katrantzou has created a flattering and bold collection. I love it!
Emilio Pucci: Fluid, sheer, easy, breezy Pucci Pucciiii. Dundas picked “Opulence of Indochina” as his theme, layering crystal embroidered jackets over chiffon and organza. If you can work these controversial looks and keep it clean, then you’ll look fabulous next summer.
Valentino: Seductive sensuality. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have sizzled it up at Valentino this year. Things are still pretty, but they’re dark and edgy now too. Every piece had something sexy going on. And old faithful Valentino kept it classical too with a finale of beautiful gowns. (Our favourite piece: the red trench)
