Initial reaction:

Military opulence.

References:

Cool layers for desert nights, and army khaki.

Set:

A concrete runway with gold satellite-like dishes hanging from the ceiling. Unbearably loud music reverberated around the space.

Stand out looks:

A white laser cut knit dress, like geometric lace, and a patchwork fisherman’s knit with peaked shoulders.

Silhouette:

Loose: fine knit layers, linen trousers and crinkled dresses with multiple skirts. Accents were created at the hips where belts drew in the layers, and in the peaked shoulders of light tops.

Colour impressions:

Black on black, differentiated with varying grid textures, tonal khaki and khaki with navy.

Unexpected details:

Boxer style shorts, and paper bag waist trousers with tucked ridges, both in an industrial khaki. Grecian draping formed halter straps and knots down the sleeves of white, flowing dresses.

Model behaviour:

Leomie Anderson in royal blue laser cut dress, described as ‘Tuareg Blue Graphic Lace.’

Prints:

Blue teardrop and minimal paisley prints felt bohemian against all the military khaki, while a trompe de l’oeil chain print appeared on dotted black finale pieces.

The look:

Poker straight hair, like we all wanted in the mid noughties.
