Roksanda Ilincic breaks against the crowd with yellow at LFW SS14
In a trend forecasting nutshell, days one to three of London Fashion Week were all about the sheer, the pink and the monochrome and as much as we loved them, things were getting a little bit 'samey'. Well lucky for us, day four was a day of change and kicking this very day off with violent yellows, eye-catching orange and purple vibrance was the talented Miss Roksanda Ilincic.
Roksanda immedietly invited us into her playhouse, presenting a selection of dolls to play with adorned in adorable, oversized black bows and winged eyeliner. The wardrobe of choice was a selection of beautifully cut dresses, oversized coats and girly skirts underlaid with tailored trousers to give a subtle, tomboy edge. Sweet, silk tees were tucked into uneven pleated skirts to reveal tiny, delicate clinched-in waists whilst gorgeously pocketed boxy jackets overwhelmed petite frames.
The wild bright colour palette was broken up with an array of grey, black, beige and charcoal hues but one striped dress in particular refused to be toned down and instead, incorporated the purple, yellow and the orange (and it actually really worked). Footwear was refreshingly unique too as a selection of PVC, jelly shoe boots coated models feet.
As the collection drew to an end, embellished flowers, wiry patterns and square-cut necks were introduced adding a more sophisticated evening look to the collection on a whole - the finale jacket in particular is a beauty.
Go on, get lured into the dolls house yourself with the wonderfully sweet clip below. See you next Spring, I'll be the one wearing bright yellow.
