Power and grace were top of mind for Roksanda Ilincic, whose elegant, confident collection was inspired by the ballet and dancers’ strength and movement. Proportions ranged from the voluminous and sculpted to the long and sinuous, in a muted color palette of pale blue, light brown, blush pink and yellow.
Dresses and strapless romper suits were adorned with stripes, zips or geometric cutout shapes, while stiff ruffles flared from the hips or peeked above trouser waists. Giant, stiff bell sleeves — a Roksanda signature — flared at the elbow.
On the softer side, there were liquid evening dresses, some with flared, floppy sleeves and belts, and gowns made from fluttery, hand-frayed panels of silk, while stiff coats were covered with shredded bits of fabric, mimicking those on the dresses.
