STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Nautical ropes, satin ribbons, and strips of mesh wrapped serpentine and crosshatch patterns around Preen’s new collection of dresses and separates to reveal a stream-of-consciousness approach towards design. The bands randomly sectioned off plots of contrasting textures: shirred chiffon, delicate corded lace, and silver lamé. The diaphanous lingerie-inspired styling, combined with a palette of pale lavender and bright coral, revealed a softer, more romantic side of Preen. Sculpted blazers, pops of neon, and a grungy graphic of deconstructed snakeskin on chiffon packed just enough edge to maintain Preen’s art-meets-fashion reputation.
