Is there such a thing as wearable art? Throughout this new millennium, graphic patterns, geometric lines and colour blocks have been a part of modernist fashion.
Coral, royal blue and scarlet were the colours of cut-out pieces. (Was it the influence of Tate London’s Matisse exhibition, yet again?) Some of the dresses with flaps flip-flopping looked like a noble experiment. Others were elegant, as with a shrimp-pink tunic with a necktie effect in sky blue and red trousers.
The separates in strong shades were appealing because they could be mixed with neutral tones. Perhaps Roksanda’s London store and her feedback from clients will encourage quieter use of colour, rather than vivid looks from neckline to sandalled feet.
