Experimentation was key for creative director Natasa Cagalj this season. While preserving the label’s playful yet sophisticated aesthetic, she channeled it into new shapes, proportions and cuts. The result: a relaxed lineup of both tailored and sporty pieces.
Cagalj introduced rounded sleeves for oversize coats in herringbone, wool or heavy twill, some with large buttons. The rounded silhouette also manifested itself in cotton shirts and casual, factory-floor pants with drawstring ties at the ankle. Playful touches included childlike doodles in bright rainbow colors, scrawled on cotton poplin shirts. The designer also experimented with fabrics for bold red, blue and white hued athletic styles, using woven jacquard fabrics with exposed threads as fringes. Loose, raw fringes also added a dose of freshness to knitted separates. Suits represented the brand’s more traditional, tailored side; but in keeping with the roomy theme, even these were done with wide-leg trousers — and in sorbet shades of pastel pink and yellow.
“We would like positivity to come across our clothes that we design. So, we hope that there’s a playfulness…and high quality and fit,” said Cagalj.
