Spring/Summer ’16 Collection at a Glance
Since Creative Director Emma Hill left the company more than two years ago, the fashion industry has been worrying about this faltering and stuttering brand. Although the collections were perfectly fine and beyond perfect in terms of their craftsmanship, they didn’t really have any wow factor. The saying “Without a struggle, there can be no progress” comes to mind. The fresh start that everyone has been waiting for with bated breath finally came during London Fashion Week: the autumn/winter looks for 2016/17 have been designed by Johnny Coca. Born in Spain, he has already been on the books of Bally and Louis Vuitton, and most recently was the man behind the much sought-after Céline bags. But until that collection goes on sale, we will be more than happy with the geometric patterns on trousers and ponchos, as well as the round-cut cardigans and spring coats in which we will snuggle up in a deckchair to enjoy the first spring rays.
