This collection stayed true to the feminine silhouettes the designer has explored over the past seasons, as in the high-necked, empire-line gown that opened the show. Its dramatic,  floor-sweeping skirts came in stripes of lime green, sky blue, beige and brown.

 

The designer said her  color palette was inspired by the “moody, hazy, smoky” tones of Erwin Blumenfeld’s photographs.

 

There were looks such as a full maxiskirt in an ornate jacquard, woven in an off-kilter color combination of dull green and salmon pink, and paired with a simple mustard top. An hourglass-shaped pencil dress came in a heavy, deep red wool with cutout details at its high neck.

 

The timeless, romantic aesthetic of this strong collection will no doubt appeal to Wickstead aficionados.
