Sarah Senouci’s collection consisted of impeccably-finished English summer attire gently infused with retro Americana. Stand By Me met Brideshead Revisited as romantic foppishness combined with dusty farmboy.
Check and and madras shirts were accessorised with bandanas and a windcheater gave a modern touch. Trousers were either of the slouchy Oxford Bags variety or aristocratic britches.
Distressed arran sweaters, boiler suits and sheepskin trousers gave a post-apocalyptic feel for Aaron Cooper’s show. A gorgeous colour palette of pale gunmetal, sand, khaki and rusty brown provided an aesthetic counterpoint to the bleak theme.
Krishna Chavda also presented a really strong show as a band of neon-clad aristo thugs swaggered down the catwalk. Modern fabrics and colours clashed with preppy jackets and panelled jodphurs in a subversively threatening collection reminiscent of the Droogs from A Clockwork Orange.
