Unconditional is without doubt my favourite collection which shows at London Fashion Week. Autumn Winter 08 is a real return to form for the label with some fresh new looks.
Last season’s show was nice, but was a bit of a safe collection for them, delivering more of the same fine gauge knits, draped and gathered garments and chest-baring T-shirts that they’ve become known for.
This season they’ve moved in a more tailored direction without losing their slouchy silhouette.
We’ve still got fine gauge knits draped across the body but this time they’ve been updated to create a more formal look. The extreme double breast of the beige suit pictured deserves special mention cos its bloody clever and looks great. I’m also loving the schoolboy blazer made into a 3 piece suit.
The Unconditional customer is hard to pin down – it’s one of those labels that’s managed to carve its own niche, creating looks which are wearable but at the same time push the boundaries of what we mean by that. Unconditional I heart you.
