Once again Malan Breton showcased an extremely strong and breathtaking collection inspired by a supernatural theme at London Fashion Week. The formalwear pieces had glittered flower prints in a silver and sheer baby blue colour and other pieces had waves of navy, bright mustard, black and shocking red running throughout the collection with accents of pastel colours.
The room was filled with an eagerness and anticipation from the impressive previous seasons Malan has presented for the industry. The garments revealed a quality of strength and power and involved, interesting shapes and textures from floor length hemlines, fishtail silhouettes, sweetheart necklines and flared trousers.
Each look was a standout look that challenged the forms of womenswear and menswear and failed to bore anyone. The mythological take on supernatural was intensely present and carried a show-stopping elegance and fierceness that people loved to watch. Key items in the collection was a cream long PVC coat which tied at the waist, a floor length mustard fishtail skirt, also PVC which had layered shapes to create the illusion of scales, printed blazer blouses to show off another element of sexy that Malan always channels and oversized double-breasted jackets for the men, which showed through in an interesting print.
Malan Breton knows how to design around the male and female frame and create alarming pieces that will surely remain unforgettable.
