London Fashion Week – Maria Grachvogel
Casual tailoring works its way through the collection in cropped and wide legged trousers in tones of slate and dusty pink. The prints, which are a staple of Grachvogel’s collection appear later with marbleised images in stone and mossy green with a sharper black image on the front. Dresses lose their fluid edge in standout pieces such as structured a-line prom dresses with double panels worn under translucent raincoats, again touching on the utilitarian trend.
Colours fuse from white to green, through to grey, and then into yellow and a deeper hue of jade in a decidedly summery scene. The duck egg yellow is particularly potent even with the twisted folds of organza layering the basic, body clinging dresses.
Swimwear for the first time is shown in various prints with stunning cut out details and multiple entwined straps – all are worn with layers of organza and rubbery raincoats.
Final pieces introduce streaks of printed black and magenta which is fantastical and finishes the show.
