This season London based designer – CIMONE returns to her signature bold and exaggerated statement pieces, embracing a collision between tradition and modern.
Inspired from dystopian narratives and Brutaist lines, the collection featured a bold mix between symmetry and asymmetry when organic feminine forms were framed by severe shoulder lines and structured shapes.
Soft, light fabrics were given structure and edge, and heavy wools hung with delicacy and gentle drape. each piece was imbued with an element of playfulness. Being both poised and elegant with a hint of rebellion waiting to erupt from the strictures of convention.
The sombre palette and sculpted contours are brought to life with eruptions of bright colour. The body is cast in both familiar and unfamiliar silhouettes, vacillating between control and chaos, both restrictive and explosive.
Continuing with CIMONE’s pride in handcraftsmanship, fabrics are subjected to unique manipulations and recast in experimental ways.
The white faced models who also wore white contact lenses, captivated and added to the eerie ambiance of the show, making it hard to concentrate on the sensational pieces.
