Roksanda Ilincic Autumn/ Winter 2010
With a collection inspired by “dark clouds, metal flowers and the Bronte sisters,” Roksanda Ilincic proved herself as London’s hottest fashion property once more. Having stood out in the drizzle for an hour prior to the show’s start I presumed that my tolerance for all things gloomy had reached its limit however, Roksanda’s (mostly) monochromatic clothing confronted her thematic dark skies with a novellesque romance that was extremely alluring. Texture was achieved through delicate metallic flower embellishments and the subtle use of varied opulent fabrics; soft free flowing silks, plush fur and thicker, structured wools. Her frizzy haired models complemented my own look nicely and in their Nicholas Kirkwood heels, signature single seamed draped dresses, they strutted defiantly down the catwalk; the beautiful embodiments of London’s brooding skies.
