For Thomas Wylde’s first pre-fall collection, creative director Paula Thomas lightened up the brand’s dark, rock-’n’-roll vibe by adding feminine, skin-toned hues and a black-and-white rose print with hints of pink. Far from precious, a skulls motif mixed among the flowers in the latter, which Thomas dubbed “Hidden Death.” It was used on feminine Forties-style chiffon blouses and dresses and even a silk charmeuse coat. There were still plenty of black pieces, but they had a softer touch, such as the sleeveless quilted satin bomber jacket with studs and floor-length chiffon dress with black enamel crosses. The pops of pink continued in silk tunic tops with poet sleeves, a sleeveless shirtdress and metallic leather pants.
