John Elliott has his take on luxury for SS17.
Elliott based his line on the idea of visualising the qualities of water, such as its reflection and shimmer. Supporting this concept were two long water pools running parallel down either side of the runway.
“Instead of very expensive luxury, this is actual functional luxury — it’s understandable but shows depth,” Elliott stated as he takes the idea of luxury into his hands.
The collection featured silk shirt jackets and reversible bombers, terry cloth shorts, t-shirts, jumpers and even towels. We are also given metallic looking cardigans, super-minimal water like prints and a lot of rips and raw hems. The collection reflects the aesthetics of water with the use of natural greens, blues and silvers.
