Iceberg AW14

Warped check, intersecting zips and leather creepers distort Italian tailoring with punk

Initial reaction:

Plaid-o-rama: designer Federico Curradi saw overtones of punk seeped through the Italian tailoring in red hued check.

Warped visions:

Distorted moving images of plaid were projected onto the runway backdrop, echoing the collection’s prints where neat checked lines were dissolved and diffused across the grid. In a final lead grey coat, the very fine check appeared digitally blurred and mimicked ripples in water.

How they wore it:

Wet hair was slicked to foreheads, while beanies and fingerless gloves felt youthful and anarchic. Thick-soled creepers continued the subtle punk theme, as did the silver zips, which intersected coats and jackets.

Stand out look:

#DazedModelArmy recruit Benjamin Jarvis in red and black, rough-check coat with wide shoulders, worn with a thick black roll neck.

Gender blur:

Extra long shirts in a fabric as soft and sheer as chiffon peeped beneath jackets and hung over trousers, hinting at a skirt.
