Veronique Branquinho has been around the design block, emerging from Belgium's 90s heyday to steadily build her brand over the 00s. She's recently returned to showing but her collections are now less about the narrative in presentation – think of that iconic series of girls in wicker Peacock chairs – and more about putting out good stable clothes that women want to wear. Camel dominated this safari-hued collection, emphasised by Stetson hats and stacked up bangles worn by the models like tribal armour. Later on these bangles were replaced by animal print fur. Being comfortable in your own skin seemed to be the overriding message and that's something Branquinho fans, in their complex glory, will relish.
