The shows continue to inspire, excite and challenge the ordinary as
Comme des Garçons’ white drama.
Drawing inspiration from life’s defining moments, the collection referenced adaptations of wedding dresses, christening gowns and pointy headed religious robes. Elaborate ornamentation, decorative headpieces and genius draping, the ivory collection moved hauntingly and effortlessly down the runway.
Haider Ackermann’s flat out approach.
Instead of stomping down the runway in the usual ensemble of sky high heels, the models at Hairder Ackermann were instead styled with flat, backless oxfords slippers. The decision to have all his girls in flats worked beautifully with the men’s inspired look of Haider’s collection, while the mix-matched silks suits, slouchy tailoring and elements of sheer worked together to define the label’s new attitude.
Viktor & Rolf’s over exaggeration.
Candy coloured hues of peach, fairy-floss and blue worked together, (or not), in the over-the-top collection from Viktor & Rolf. Although the dramatic doll-like elements were complemented by the elaborate staging and music, in the end, they unfortunately upstaged the simpler, more beautiful pieces.
