A collection that’s a reflection of the aesthetic of today’s generation; innovative, risk-taking, untidy and revealing (at times). The hippie-chic and super glamourous collection by Shakuhachi, ticked the boxes for every young fashionista in the room. After a no-show at RAFW for five years, Jessie White‘s spring summer showcase was much awaited on day three of Fashion Week.
The Gen-Y vibe came through as the show started with a video montage of the collection’s inspiration. Think eclectic, boho prints with snake-skin, lace and metallic embellishments, bringing out a modern Cleopatra.
The loose silhouettes exemplified the summer aspect with high-waisted shorts, structure shift dresses,Â flared pants and maxi dresses adding to the collection’s feminine ’60s element. Fabric cut-outs around the waist and bare shoulder patches revealed plenty of skin.Â Aptly titled, Block Party, theÂ palette married bold colours with hot pink, sunrise orange, watermelon red and Tiffany blue on the catwalk.
Stylist Lenya Jones loved the mix of fabrics with leather and silk on the same garment. She picked up on theÂ chokers and Perspex belts as being on-trend for the upcoming season.
