On a recent trip to the Red Sea, Julien MacDonald soaked up the local culture and was fascinated by the port’s fishing lifestyle. In keeping with his aquatic inspiration, leather jackets received gill-like details that were evenly placed along sleeves, layers of webby knits that looked like fishermens’ nets were layered over dresses, and fishscales, created from sequins and paillettes, adorned segmented body-con dresses. Scuba gear brought an athletic influence to one-piece bodysuits and leggings, both covered in exposed zippers that worked more for decoration than function.
