It seems as though many designers have been sourcing inspiration from school mathematics textbooks. Geometry was expressed through shapes, prints and interesting textures.
We saw the two sides of geometry in the Valentino collection. From the bold prints and 60’s style to the softer looks from the richly embroidered tulles of the floor-grazing gowns. They were soft and elegant, just like Carolina Herrera’s collection.
The geo prints popped up in Prada’s wool crêpe dresses and overcoats. However, prints were not seen in the Céline collection, but there were interesting angular silhouettes.
Chanel, Dries Van Noten and Jonathan Sauders collections brightened up the runways, with a pop of lime greens and fuchsias. Bottega Veneta on the other hand stuck with a simple range of colours that included black, white, grey and terracotta.
Without doubt, the most original use of geometry was seen at Christopher Kane, with the intricate origami-style folds and sleeves made of curling ribbon.
Are you excited for the geometrical prints and silhouettes this Autumn/Winter 2014-15?
