London: Charles Anastase’s collection was filled with charming elements for today’s ingénue. Sweet dotted Swiss and sheer organzas were used for billowy button-ups, tops with wide ruffled collars and pencil skirts, as well as a range of dresses with hemlines falling to mid-calf. The shirtdress was a key item for Anastase this season, shown in a range of tones and shapes, the best of which was a roomy, drop-waisted version in pure white. The sole print was a painterly, 1970s-inspired motif featuring overlapping squares in tonal pales. A metallic silver jacquard, used for slim cropped pants and a swingy coat, enlivened the femme palette of mint green, pink and white and gave an edge to all the sweetness. The grown-out bobs and thick-rimmed glasses were an homage to his assistant Valentine Fillol-Cordier, their quirky-cute appeal enhancing the collection’s allure.
