“Blink” London Fashion Week: Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, AW’15

Gorgeous show. Gorgeous soundtrack. Thanks Preen by Thornton Bregazzi for delivering beautiful, innovative and inventive womenswear that is also completely wearable. A particularly British skill we think.

Transposing the traditional geometry of blanket style tartans on to soft fluidity looked texturally fresh. Blending this, floral motifs and delicate lace with the shearling, dense wools and colour blocking created wonderful levels of contrast, tactility and structure. Softness and strength, isn’t that a key part of what femininity is about?

This girl feels windswept from the moors, fresh faced and a somehow historical. There’s something definitely Arts and Crafts, William Morris and Charles Rennie Mackintosh springing to mind, or is that just me still obsessing over my Weiner Werkstatte forecast?

Enjoy! Lucy
