A highway to heaven, in luxurious wool asymmetric draping. Tyre treads travelled in lines over coats, and merged into oversized cable knit-esque prints.
Under a grey lamp post, a female musician played guitar and sang at the side of the runway road, like a busker. The mood was wistful and slightly melancholic, and the air swirled with the smell of car fumes.
A grey obsession:
“We have always loved grey as a background. Things pop out so well”, Rolf Snoeren told us in December. This collection certainly didn’t stray too far from their preferred sombre shade.
The trompe l'oeil bows of the haute couture collection remerged in printed ‘drapes’ around the waist, contrast sweetheart printed necklines, and a soft neoprene-like sweater printed with a cardigan edged in white.
Stand out looks:
A boxy patent black leather jacket with plaited wool woven through, and the unexpected burst of neon red in the multi-layered floral prints.
