Mary Katrantzou

In SS16, the designer’s collection was as enchanting as ever. Jewel tones on light, sparkling party dresses glistened on the catwalk. Sweet floral prints linked the different designs together, with complicated blends of embellishment, print and embroidered pieces. Even the shoes had beautiful prints!

Jonathan Saunders

Stripes and tropical floral prints were our favourites at this show. Colour was also prominent as always with Saunders – vivid reds sat alongside blush pinks and nudes. Silhouettes were inspired by the oriental – kimonos, wraps and off the shoulder dresses.

Peter Pilotto

The pair behind the brand, Christopher de Vos and Peter Pilotto, are known for their quirky digital prints. Pastel dreams walked the runway with geometric yet feminine prints.

Etro

One of our new favourites, Etro’s show was a bohemian dream. Their luxurious prints are paired with soft shapes and layers in this collection, titled ‘Nomadic Garden’ – a fairytale fit for the FROW. It appears this romantic, boho style is sticking around for the next few seasons, and we are very happy about that!
