The London designer delves into the dressing up box for a circus-inspired collection topped off with gender bending jewels

Initial reaction:

Boy scouts run away to join the circus. The collection was built up of colourful clothes that serenaded you with a mix of super bold prints and clashing colours in Neale’s typically kaleidoscopic visual aesthetic. Think London boys putting on their own version of a burlesque show.

Dressing up:

The designer who has built a name for himself with his cartoonish prints took a step forward and delved into a world where a trip into the dressing up box was key. Varsity jackets, printed shirts and quarter length trousers came to life in vivid tones, while fuzzy textures made their way onto jumpers.

Feminine touch:

Effeminate accessories put a gender bending spin on proceedings. Chunky earrings, sparkling badges and fluffy layering added to the designer’s fun, outlandish attitude. This is a collection offering clothes to lurch forward in, not to retire shyly in.
