What everyone is talking about:
As everyone found their seats for the Michael Lo Sordo runway, a hush of whispers filled the room with comments of artist, Dion Horstman’s 3D geometric sculpture situated centre of the runway. As curiosity grew, all was revealed as the models weaved through the architecture, the sharp and harsh lines of the sculpture juxtaposed with the new direction the label had taken this season; soft silhouettes and dreamy pastels.
This season, the Michael Lo Sordo collection took a close look at ‘the woman.’ Who is she? What does she want to wear? Stepping back from his signature tailored pieces, Lo Sordo showcased a softer side to the label by delving into new depths through relaxed silhouettes and soft gelati pinks, blues and yellows.
The conventional trench coat we all know so well was reinvented with lightweight fabric and soft pastel colours. By layering the garment with slip dresses and bralettes, it successfully toned down the formality of the conventional trench coat. We’re wearing this piece on a cool day out on the way to lunch with friends.
Sprinkled in the collection, pink and grey snakeskin print made an appearance as well as metallic details to give an edge to the collection.
Tailored pieces were casually added with a suit ensemble and oversized business shirts, bringing the designer’s aesthetic back to the surface to create a cohesive collection.
Hair done by Redken focussed on channelling effortless editorial, creating a strong yet elegant look that encapsulates the label. Makeup by Maybelline NY was natural with creamy foundation, bronzer and curled eyelashes with no mascara.
What we’re addicted to:
Gelati colours for winter, the cold season just got more playful.
