The collective behind MM6 Maison Margiela presented another collection which delved into the archives for a modern day reinterpretation. This streetwear inspired poncho fuses a kanga front pocket with heavy, hoodie jersey, juxtaposed against a metallic skirt and sequinned boots for an effortlessly glamlesiure look.
This is the second collection we are seeing from newly appointed creative director, Natacha Ramsay Levi. Chloe’s little sister brand, See By Chloe, feels more tomboy than before as placement graphics borrow inspiration from the growing Logomania trend. The oversized proportions, teamed with a sleek leather finish, touches upon notions of the streetwear in a feminine manner.
Phillip Lim has proven time and time again that he is the master of uniform reinterpretation. This skirt silhouette draws clear influences from utilitarian roots, where a trench coat has been deconstructed and then buttoned together again to create a sophisticated, asymmetric look with the perfect amount of edge.
Joseph Altuzarra has elaborated upon the Western trend this season, with a strong influence from Native American inspirations. Luxe suede has been studded with nail heads in an ethnically folkloric fashion, remaining distinctively feminine with subtle hints of rocker.
We are seeing many designers playing with traditional checks in modern ways this season. This heritage check cape instantly feels younger and more playful with the addition of a scalloped hem, while still remaining feminine and flirtatious.
For the Pre-Fall 2018 season, Coach 1941 deconstructs traditional oriental dressing. A youthful attitude is evoked through the contemporary collaged look of Asiatic silks and Edwardian lace, elevated by an emerald green colour pop.
