Nostalgic vibes from the pioneer of music-inspired clothing...

It was the summer of love at the John Richmond show with a nod to John Lennon and the circular shades he made famous. The collection was a juxtaposition of smart and casual. Tousled models paraded a variety of open collared shirts paired with blazers, jeans, suit trousers and harems.

The 70s were also prevalent. Tight fitting shirts with big collars, florals and bold/embellished leathers were all present, not to mention printed scarves and snakeskin shoes. A key item was the blazer, featured in a number of cuts, colours and materials including shocking red, check, embroidered denim as well as more muted variations of grey. All in all, the John Richmond collection exuded laidback cool with a subtle, smart edge.
