Day Three
Luxe Wear Collection A
I have had the pleasure of looking at Mich's collection before her Fashion Week shows and I have to say that it was love at first sight. Moving forward it was risque prints, drapes and new shapes that collided to result in a collection of fresh, easy to wear pieces thats still unconventional and very pretty.
Full Review Here...
Pale and bright greens, dark blues, whites and blush set off Mich's mastery of technique. Structure and clean tailoring is still very apparent but this time softened by using jersey and finishing it with drapes, unusual collar shapes, volume sleeves and asymmetric hems. First out was a deep-V tee dress with varying layers of ruffle length that fell down sideways below the knee, and then a tank and an oversized navy blue shorts (it also comes in trousers!) that I absolutely adore. When not worn its this huge dhoti silhouette, but when cinched and folded at the waist, its an architectural shape that balloons in the hip and narrows down slightly at the knees. And then there's the twisted front dress finished with crossover halter straps, the shift with volume sleeves and the quirky sleeveless babydoll dress thats short at the middle and longer at the sides. For the fans of Mich that love her signature solid color and structured shape design, there's still plenty to choose from: the cut and sew navy blue jacket dress with extended sleeves, the blush a-line frock with bow detail, the shirt dress thats finished with a plain hem at the front but shirred at the side to create a bubble skirt at the back. Mich always has a quirky style thats backed up by a solid and precise technicality. And even though the overall feel may be whimsical, there is a dark subversiveness (in the prints) and a perfection for finishing and detail that conveys she means serious business.
