This collection marked a further evolution of Ashley Williams’ tough, kitschy muse, with a sleek lineup that played on Eighties power suits.

 

Williams’ take on the idea translated into boxy, oversize jackets paired with skinny, cropped pants — worn over slogan T-shirts — all accessorized with huge crystal earrings and stiletto sandals. There were also pencil skirts with suspenders that crisscrossed over the body, while shirts with high, ruffled collars and cuffs conjured up the more romantic, flamboyant side of Eighties style.

 

To further underline the collection’s hard edge, there was a tongue-in-cheek print of pocket tasers crackling with electricity, which appeared on pantsuits and a silk shift dress. While a more controlled outing for Williams, the collection still fizzed with her very British sense of humor.
