New York: Josep Font, Creative Dirctor of the prét-a-couture house, was influenced for autumn/winter 2015/16 by the Australian artist Rhys Lee and Russian painter Andrey Remnev’s modern interpretation of the Pre-Raphaelite spirit. The set resembled a winter wonderland of white cardboard trees as the models walked the curvy path to a slow and serene soundtrack. The structure and architecture maintained throughout the collection elicited an effortless ease with sheer fabric blocking, origami folds, balloon contoured sleeves and padded shoulders. Embellishments were quite breathtaking with bright colored and oversized floral appliqué placements, sequins, and geometric patterns. Velvet played an interesting role with three different uses; devoré velvet was used within evening wear, traditional velvet for heavier-weight blocking and technical velvet used in turtlenecks and daywear. Knitwear made a major impact with oversized silhouettes, multi-stitch patterns, and ornate crochet appliqué draping along the body. Color was bold and unique with bright shades of neon yellow, Yves Klein blue, Kelly green, and red pairing back to more subtle hues of nudes, blush, and icy blue. Jaclyn Jones
