THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
London: Preen are back on the London scene giving their fans what they know and love: Cocktail dresses, smart coats and feminine tailoring with a dose of their signature lingerie-inspired detailing. After playing with pale and pastel shades for a few seasons, Thornton and Bregazzi opted for an controlled ebony and ivory palette with traffic-stopping red and electric blue highlights. Zippers provided a tool for twisting the classics, splicing through dresses and skirts and creating asymmetric lines. Demure-yet-dramatic, floor-sweeping printed shirt dresses, beautiful lingerie lace, sheer leopard-print chiffon and delicate floral embroidery added charm and softness to an otherwise commanding collection. — Natalie Shukur
