London Fashion Week Spring Summer 2019 : Ports 1961
Woven crochet dresses with beaded details were crying out for Ibizan shores; sharply tailored suiting - a Natasa Cagalj specialty - demanded Speedy Boarding. Also tempting were the jersey dresses, ruched at the hips, and the floor-skimming slips overlaid with a network of woven cords, left to fly loose from the bust down.The Philo-shaped gap in fashion’s current line-up has created an opportunity for minimalists with a crafty bent, and Cagalj staked her claim on the territory convincingly. Utilitarian coats in navy, khaki and sand looked ideal city cover-ups, while sharp blazers in placid blues and pebbly greys, and gently oversized cuts, were serious contenders for this season’s go-anywhere jacket. Lots to like here.
