Contrasting tones, in neutrals or brights, are making winning statements this season. "This collection is a mix of Fifties and Seventies looks," says Collette Dinnigan, who sees those decades as a medley of "gospel choir, bohemian and Jamaican" looks. Rossella Jardini, creative director of Moschino Cheap & Chic, for her part, takes some suggestions from the Sixties. "I used graphic elements in shapes and vivid prints, such as the macro polkadots and the flower print," she explains. Active styles meet evening looks at Behnaz Sarafpour in a collection filled with sporty elements, from a sequined wrestling tank to a silk jacquard dress with nylon mesh backing. Equally sportif is Alice Temperley's resort collection for Temperley London, which gives nautical elements a girly spin, as in a ruffled knit dress.
