What Pris from Blade Runner Would Wear if She Went Exploring with Christopher Columbus
Known for their story-driven collections bursting with juicy prints and cool tailoring, the London-based team of Susanne Ostwald and Ingvar Helgason - who design under the label Ostwald Helgason & whose fans include risk taking fashionistas Rihanna & Daphne Guinness - told tales of adventure and British imperialsm for Spring/Summer: tailored jackets, skirts draped asymmetrically, a jungle's worth of botanicals, hydrangea paillettes, burlap netting and cork details. An interesting take on Rudyard Kipling that fuses eco and tech in a way both historical & futuristic.
