Todd Lynn always creates desirable tailoring for ladies, in an androgynous yet flattering silhouette. Referencing the 1975 movie of Nathaniel West’s novel “ The Day Of The Locust’ a film about the doomed journey of a group of Hollywood wannabes in 1938, looks are assertive and immaculate. In true Lynn style the colours from last season remain the same, smoky grey, raspberry red and coffee brown. Shiny PVC fabric dresses are mixed with luxe feather suits, a show of rich, heavy, textured fabrics. Cropped leather bombers and waistcoats in dusky pinks, black and greys. Louboutins add to the polished, glamorous feeling present, and oversized shoulder pads hark back to eras past. The finest gauge knitwear was seen in both men’s and womenswear collections, in blacks and greys. One of the statement looks was an extreme feathered graduated cap sleeve dress, in a quirky hourglass shape. Splashed of disco brights were added with hot pink waistcoats and
The menswear was a combo of slick and casual and rock’n’ roll. Grey knitted trousers with pink knee pads. Structured, streamlined tailoring, that Lynn does best was abundant, but this season with sheer jersey knit sleeves to add a quirk. Lacquered feathers were added as embellishment to Men’s shirts, Louboutin supplying a men’s chukka boot, designed especially for the show. Marvellous!
