It’s rare to find a collection where you would wear every single item LIKE A BOSS. Oh, Dries. Mexican otomi and flamenco ruffles, Incan gold and Dutch tulips? Si. HF.

I try (in a few minutes max, I must admit) to draw print/trend conclusions from the shows, but sometimes I just chuck in the textile towel, and revel in uploading one collection. Usually, as you may have noticed, it is Erdem, Michael van der Ham, Pilotto, Katrantzou, Dries… However of those that have shown already this season, none have wowed me. So the crown falls to Mother of Pearl, for London at least. There is such a strong, consistent, clean-but- mad aesthetic that to the label that I love. An accomplishment when you’re collaborating with, and featuring different print designers each season. HF.
