I like Cedric Charlier for his eponymous way of designing clothes and holding the label. After his trip to Mexico, he brought some peaceful prints and colours to his elegant, but slouchy pre-fall – fringes and lemon yellow sweatshirt & sweatpants were all here, creating an interesting fuse. There was also something a little pajama-ish about the idea, which communicated a sense of ease. Draped silk dresses in black or in blanched coral had a similar effect, though the collection’s slender overcoats proved that Charlier didn’t forget his instinct for discipline.
The SS15 season is all about 70’s- so, how you might know, a theme full of colours, imperfections and prints. The designers truly thought of “raw” touches in their pieces- Cedric Charlier, the Paris-based designer, made the red & blue threads go out from the black fabric in his dresses; Miuccia Prada mixed vintage silk materials with linen, creating a chaotic “not so perfect” feeling. J.W. Anderson at Loewe and Yohji Yamamoto simply through the mish-mash embroideries and cottons on the model’s bodies. Although it’s not about clean lines, this kind of lightness feels pretty much appealing, isn’t it?
