Roksanda Ilincic Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection was shown in London Fashion Week, September 21,2015.
To celebrate her milestone 10th anniversary at London Fashion, Roksanda looked to the work of sculptor Pascal Pierme and the light touch of Ikebana flower arranging and re-imagined it through her own impeccable vision. The models were her flowers, the clothes her sculptural signature. Set under high-vaulted deco arches, modernist curves and cubes of blush pink, MDF installations distorted the models’ walk around the venue, and brought the audience closer to the pieces.
Sleeves were gathered like sweet wrappers, drop shoulders were full and softly ruffled, and pantsuits placed the ruffled waistband so high they became jumpsuits. Colours of ice blue, nude, acidic yellow and burnt orange are signatures of Roksanda, but this season she outlined and punctuated with black, and mixed block colour cutouts, panelling and applied architectural precision with their placement.
