Red, black, camel and a hint of nude were the overriding colours for Farhi’s AW 10-11 collection, presented at a fresh-faced Royal Albert hall the morning after the Baftas. Daywear consisted of plaid jackets in red, beige and black as well as camel coats secured with patent belts. Underneath, nude cardigans were layered with skinny trousers whilst a black silk camisole smartened a casual drawstring skirt.
The eveningwear pieces of patent-paneled trousers and knee-lengths skirts were punctuated by 19th century antique-rose print dresses. Sleeves were differing in lengths or exposing a shoulder through asymmetrical draping on metallic and red cocktail dresses. Whilst the finale summarised the collection with a star-beaded tulle ensemble; a combination of daywear tailoring and eveningwear fabrics created a luxurious and easy to wear dress.
