Daks | LFW | SS16 | Day 1

Daks is one of my favourites every season, I’m a classic for a British house and so for me, Daks is right on the money. This season was steeped in 1920’s and 30’s references, with a grand marble back drop that made you feel like you were in a super swanky jazz club.

Marble prints, deco repeat print references and soft and slightly distorted leaf prints were set against a palette of soft monochrome hues and dulled turquoise & mauve, both accented with a reach caramel/cinnamon shade that made appearances throughout the difference phases of the collection.

Essentially this collection had a strong, workwear vibe. Great androgynous suiting, wide legged trousers with front pleats, pencil skirts with wide waisted belts and oversized patch pockets. There was some beautifully printed shirting, with flared out cuffs and high necks, soft and sheer.

The dressier and more glam parts of the collection featured slashed to the navel dresses, stunningly draped, cape back details and a the closing, full skirt, with a cinched waist was absolutely divine.

Soft pleating was again a feature here, suggesting that folds are definitely in for SS’16.

A gorgeous collection of easily wearable pieces with equal measure of androgynous chic and soft, feminine glamour.
