After descending many stairs at the Savoy, I finally reached the room where the show was to take place. With an amazing view directly at the models entrance, I saw many combinations of style.
A muted palette of pewters, ivory, stone and navy took shape through silk asymmetric dresses with plenty of draping. Classic looks were included with straight cut front seamed trousers and tuxedo style blazers. A combination of fabrics were used such as tweed coats and trousers, fur collars on boiled wool coats in ivory and feather collars and cuffs to accessorize.
There was an androgynous feel to this collection and the model's slick back hair and black lipstick enforced this. Although elements of lace and the floaty dresses at the beginning of the collection, nude patent heels and cut out patterns revealing bits of flesh help to add femininity. Throughout the collection, despite overall being quite monochromatic, there were splashes of colour such as lime green and coral that took shape in the style of shift dresses. Maria played with all elements of the sleeve through this collection showing us that we can wear long, cropped, and sleeveless this winter. There were elements that showed us this collection was slightly 80's inspired yet jewellery combined with the palette brought it right back to aztec times!
