Green’s warrior monks were once again decked-out in his signature hybrid mix of clerical and military references, feeling just as stripped-back and cohesive in terms of message, except that this season the London designer’s collection was noticeably more commercial. But then Green is fast becoming a big name and it makes sense to provide product that allows customers to buy into that, especially after the success of his spring/summer show. The multi-straps, self-belts, lacing, wrapping and subtle padding combined with fluid shapes and contrast proportions to create a combative, yet romantic mood, further enhanced by beautiful fabrics and a return to bold, tonal colour usage. His cropped jackets, engineered crew-neck sweaters, work shirts and wide-leg trousers were amongst the pieces that will no doubt prove to be easy sells.
