D & G
There was no sign of sadness as the models walked their last ever D&G catwalk. Instead, from the very moment the music started, we knew we were onto a good one. The looks were bright, fun and feminine and surprisingly enough, felt a lot more sophisticated than the brand's previous collections, which had probably something to do with D&G merging with its big sister, Dolce & Gabana. Scarves in bright hues and bold patterns were wrapped around the body, creating an array of ruched mini dresses, tops, skirts and shoes. As often when working with foulards, one cannot not mention Hermès as an undeniable source inspiration, but in this case, there was also a little bit of vintage Versace's extravagance thrown in for good measure. This is what I call going out with a bang!
Bold, colourful, fresh and sexy. These are the first things that come to mind when looking at Williamson's latest collection. Not only is it the first time in history the Tate's Turbine Hall opens its door to a fashion show, it is also Williamson's first collaboration with shoe designer Charlotte Olympia. As for the clothes, there were beautiful tailored trousers, shorts, and blazers in every colour, paired with soft chiffon blouses. Embroidered with ostrich feathers and beads, the dresses were magnificent, perfect for the numerous A-listers that were, once again, gracing the front row.
