The 60s Swing-back
Eary’s Autumn/Winter collection showed us once more why’s she’s the go-to-girl for print. The most blatant reference or memory inspired by these swirling, geometric and conversational patterns was the 60s heydays of Pucci by way of Hugh Hefner. The latter is only a light comment on the silk dressing gowns that took to the runway, evoking the ever blurring lines between smart, casual, loungewear, which has now evolved into sleepwear. The recent obsession with co-ord looks and duster coats can only have been a precursor to sleepwear as daily apparel.
There were women too on the the catwalk but that’s nothing new. Although Daisy Lowe’s look really did bring the fun and cool of the 60s to life.
The colour’s felt appropriately Autumnal in a palette much inspired by 70’s interiors and design. Russets and plums dominated the array, both pigments well supported by the liquid fabrics and flowing lines.
Form-fitting outerwear in luxurious fabrics really tied the collection together along with the regular motif of that little lizard, who cropped up throughout.
The piping on shawl collared shirting, the open shouldered knitwear, the awkward layering of lengths; the design delights are also in the details for this collection.
