High Summer kicks off with an acidic jungle-inspired print in overripe hues, inspiring a collection drenched with vibrancy and brimming with hi-tech attitude. A fractured pastel print in October explores this season’s trend of photographic holiday prints filtered and abstracted into a new era. A saturated tropical colour palette in September of Shocking Pink, Electric Blue and Spearmint develops into a colour palette of Lilac, Lemon, Sea Blue and Flamingo Pink for October.
The sports-luxe trend evolves, merging with feminine elements and weaving it’s way through fabrications, embellishments and prints. A watercolour botanical print geometrically spliced adds an athletic edge to otherwise feminine composition and a floral applique receives a sports-luxe makeover in a leatherette on techno-mesh fabrication. Powermesh is the new way to do sheer and lends a sporty, body-con element to evening, making those on-trend peek-a-boo cutouts so much more wearable.
Lustrous foiled fabrications continue to mine the metallic trend and the metal of the season is copper. Molten metallic accents are spliced throughout moulded evening looks, lace receives a futuristic makeover with a foiled finish, and copper embroidery gives day wear a high-tech edge. Metallic futuristic inspired beading and embellishment on separates and dresses creates must-have, statement-making occasion pieces.
Key items include a hexagonal geo-lace maxi dress spliced with monochromatic paneling, relaxed easy-wearing pants in viscose fabrications, a series of cutting edge racewear dresses exploring sports-luxe, monochrome and metallic trends, easy-wearing tops essential for paring back with statement separates and a flourish of silk crepe de chine dresses in every colour for every occasion.
