Paris: Peachoo Datwani and Roy Krejberg have built their label on the premise of mixing edginess with femininity, and this season’s collection upheld their aesthetic. Sharply tailored cutaway jackets featured oversized hook and eye closures, hinting at punk (or Amish) influences, and leather coats with monkey fur collars looked perfect for the urban warrior. A limited palette of grey, silver and black further solidified the show’s hard-edged undertone. The mood was lightened with silvery washed satin separates in luxurious, languid silhouettes that evoked 1930s glamour, and by filmy, layered chiffon dresses that peeked out from under structured outerwear. The design duo showcased their commitment to craftsmanship with laser-cut tops and dresses embroidered with metallic silver or shimmering black thread. Jackets and gowns made from tightly packed fabric feathers perhaps took it all too far, but overall Peachoo + Krejberg’s collection brilliantly balanced the hard and the soft with ease and sophistication.
