The building blocks of Brutalist architecture found in his men’s collection for spring were also the baseline for Ben Taverniti’s resort collection for women. He expanded on this with a decidedly more glam-rock aesthetic, peppered with red and orange sportswear, floral prints and innovative pigment-brushed leather intended to give the look of concrete.

Two bright prints were spliced together, vying for attention on his blouses and drop-crotch pants, or worn knee-high on quirky boots, while red leather flares had front tie fastenings evocative of the Sixties. Twisted body-con jersey tops added a sexy touch to the lineup, providing a contrast with the more masculine, outsized pieces both tailored and street.
