Cimone’s AW17 series dominated the runway with a powerful collection of structural design.
The dynamic collection presents us with uncompromising shoulder lines, creating the powerful silhouette of a broad shoulder. A pivotal distinct form first sighted in the 1940’s with the heavy use of shoulder pads.
A decade that also grew fond of volume, peplum, batwing sleeves and exaggerated proportions. All of which Pearson (former Stella McCartney designer) has managed to creatively redefine with an unconventional, futuristic twist.
More notably, the pieces feature a bold collision of symmetry and asymmetry, a playful experimentation that is surprisingly well balanced and easy on the eye.
If symmetry and asymmetry isn’t contrasting enough, Pearson further outlines the sculpted garments with the use of chromatic and achromatic colour.
It is clear that despite conflict, the Cimone team have managed to orchestrate a series of chaotic elements into a rather spectacular collection.
Something we all felt was well worth applauding for by the end of the show.
