REPORT BY JANE DE TELIGA
Our style crib sheet to the season so far, as we’re out of here Tuesday…
The flow of form: think structured panels at Mary Katrantzou and curves at Antonio Berardi.
The golden age of couture: Preen reprised Dior’s New Look in bustle skirts, while Huishan Zhang looked to the YSL Mondrian graphic dress.
Bye bye pattern: hello embroidery at Peter Pilotto and laser-cut satins at Jonathan Saunders.
Debbie Harry chic: think punky Chelsea boots at Clements Ribeiro and slashing zippers at Preen.
Concealed sex: the inspirations? The gap between Béatrice Dalle’s teeth at Holly Fulton; Christine Keeler at Burberry Prorsum.
La di da: think Temperley London’s Hitchcock heroine Kim Novak; L’Wren Scott’s Gustav Klimt sirens; Diana Vreeland at Emilia Wickstead.
Sparkle-larkle lights: cascades of crystals at Antonio Berardi; deco Machine Age silver at Sass & Bide.
Lady of the lake: Guinevere sleeves at Marios Schwab; Kristen McMenamy’s long locks at Giles.
Already?: think Christopher Kane’s luxe camo; Thomas Tait’s street-style cashmere and House of Holland doing acid house.
Spit and polish: glazed vinyl at Jonathan Saunders; shiny yellow vinyl at Sass & Bide, and patent and latex trenches at Burberry Prorsum.
