From day 3 RAFW: Gary Bigeni SS2011/12.
Gary Bigeni makes our sort of fashion. Bold, solid colours, strategic draping and a play with form combining to make a fresh study in minimalism. You can see the ideas are far from minimal however: Bigeni’s tricky engineering is a testament to his mastery of the draped form. His signature silk jersey dresses flow around the body, this season belted around the waist in a way that looped in and out of the garment. His colour combinations were delicious, lots of bright blues, reds with terracottas, and our particular favourite an aqua and lilac combo that looked great coming down the runway. A very wearable, strong collection that we wanted to eat up. Every last bite.
