London:  Craig Green demonstrated a controlled, summer evolution of his aesthetic, which is now firmly established as a mix of Japanese workwear influences with ceremonial, robe-like styling. The clothes had an assembled feel with plenty of soft layering hardened by quilted panels, which added an armoured appearance. Straps remained the predominant method of fastening, trailing behind many of the looks, and were either belted kimono-style, or tied diagonally across the body exploring new ways of layering and controlling the flowing silhouettes while revealing glimpses of skin or colour. Green’s distinctive colour palette of all white, blue, red and black has evolved to include primary bursts of orange, emerald, yellow and powder blue. While most of the looks were monotone, he started also mixing his colours with great effect. Back again were the wide, cropped trousers and wooden structures – notably absent from his past runway offerings. Also noteworthy was Green’s inclusion of female models into the show, reflecting the growing popularity of his collections across both genders. – Tom Crisp
