Christian Wijnants wove ethnic influences and graphic effects inspired by sportswear into his spring collection, which he said was inspired by Somali women who play basketball in defiance of threats from Islamist militants.

Wijnants, winner of the 2013 International Woolmark Prize, went for a lightweight look with sundresses in a crinkled silk organza in light gray and beige stripes that was draped into asymmetrical folds, and sheer linen wide-legged pants, including one pair in a striking shade of Tuareg blue.
