Clements Ribeiro

London: Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro are masters of print mixing as well as intarsia knits, both of which were on-trend combined techniques throughout their F/W 13 collection. Thematically, the duo made a departure from Spring’s nerdy charm, pursuing a more classically feminine take on big florals and 70s geometrics, producing bold silk shirtdresses layered beneath diamond motif v-neck sweaters, lace overlay sheaths with beaded tribal collars and sporty grid mesh skirts. Although the fit of straight leg trousers was a bit too relaxed for Fall’s reflective satins and jacquards, the presentation’s diverse textures and cohesive tapestry-style palette made for a satisfying new interpretation of tradition. —Nina Stotler
