“I’ve done a lot of new things – more colour, more fluidity, more texture,” Todd Lynn told us before his show this afternoon. “And I’m totally nervous about it, but if you don’t take these risks then what’s the point? I want to have fun with it.” His nerves were thoroughly unjustified as his collection turned out to be as beautifully put together and impeccably tailored as ever, with a warmer than usual colour palette that ran from grey to gold to inky indigo and orange. Dresses with high necklines were split down the front, one raised into sharp Shaun Leane wings in yet another collaboration that adds to Lynn’s unique chic. He’d also worked with Christian Louboutin for a gorgeous line-up of baggy ankled, studded boots, as well as The Libertines’ Gary Powell for a bespoke soundtrack. As darkly, confidently sexy as ever, the collection featured trousers that flared softly to a pleat at the front and dresses with waffled gold fronts and solid crêpe backs that had narrow snakes of chiffon around them. We like this new, but recognisable, Lynn.
