MSFW 2014: Designer Runway 2
Writen By Guest Blogger
Designer runway two taught a captivated audience why less certainly is more at last night’s spectacular runway.
A resounding theme of the runway was the evolution of a current trend – Black and white are no longer the safe haven of minimalist style. Colour and texture both made their debut onto the minimalist scene, with clean, refined lines accentuated by bright tones and graphic prints.
Manning Cartell, Life with Bird, and Alice McCall were particular standouts as they pushed the boundaries of what we know to be contemporary minimalism, and tempered the trend with their clever use of detail and tailoring.
This jumpsuit by Alice McCall was a personal favourite. Its sleek tailoring, and playful yet simultaneously tasteful use of colour and embelishment made for an absolute show stopper.
Another favourite, also from Alice McCall was this juxtaposition of prints, and fabric texture.
Life with Bird, one of my favourite labels did not disappoint with this sorbet delight! The delicately perforated neoprene coupled with the clever use of colour ensured the look built upon, but did not veer away from the label’s minimalist aesthetic.
