New York: Designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville took a giant step away from their signature workwear-inspired, tomboyish looks this season, delivering an eclectic mix of color and texture, toughened up by utilitarian details. Lawrence of Arabia, YSL in Morocco and fighter pilots in G-suits were among the diverse inspirations behind the collection. Macramé pieces and vibrant prints in lush greens and blues looked right for an exotic getaway, while tailored garments embellished with straps and buckles had a streetwise appeal. The buckles and clasps also appeared for cage bralettes – the result of a collaboration with lingerie designer Jean Yu – for a femme paratrooper look. Pops of silver lamé and striking orange-red added a futuristic raver undertone to the army-inspired looks, a fresh update and proof of the incredible breadth and versatility of the military trend.
