Packham in New York


The Jenny Packham S/S14 show took place at The Studio, Lincoln Center yesterday (10th Spet). Loosely influenced by the Australian cult film ‘Picnic At Hanging Rock’ (1975, directed by Peter Weir and based on the novel by Joan Lindsay), the collection was inspired by the exquisite styling of the film – a seventies take on austere Edwardian attire.


Fusing classic 70’s prints with traditional embellishments and materials championed at the turn of the 20th Century, this season’s offering featured Polka dots, checks and stripes mimicked in beautiful pearl and Swarovski beading. Brick red, cobalt blue and lime green tones were contrasted with a delicate array of soft powder pinks and silver marbles. Translucent, weightless organza added a whimsical romance to the collection whilst waists clinched with satin ribbons referenced the silhouettes of the Edwardian era.

Christina Hendricks sat front row alongside journalist and presenter, Louise Roe and UK Vogue Editor, Alexandra Shulman. Christina wore a montera blue cocktail dress from the A/W13 Collection and Louise wore a A/W13 sugar pink tea length skirt with a S/S13 ivory embellished top.
