New York: Camilla and Marc cited their customer as their inspiration for Pre-Summer; “She’s confident, yet there’s a sense of softness.” they explained. The sentiment struck home in a series of languid yet structured silhouettes emphasizing bold graphic patterns and a play on fabrications. With this in mind, a cream fabric looked similar to lace but came in a more robust jacquard whilst a flowing whisper blue dress appeared lighter than air but was made from a sturdy silk-wool blend. Tailoring was relaxed though not so nonchalant that it didn’t ooze authority- an off the shoulder jumpsuit in crisp white stood out as a must-have piece and offered an approachable minimalist aesthetic for their customers. A series of outfits in a bold placement graphic print underscored the theme and highlighted a desirable and feminine collection with masses of substance. – Anna Ross
