Sleek, silver pieces that looked like liquid metal, smart tailoring and interesting colour-blocking, added up to a strong presentation from Austrian Arthur Arbesser, a finalists in the LVMH Prize for up-and-coming designers. The setting and clothes were rife with references to his native land including a beautiful coat and wide-legged trousers that featured a bright, graphic pattern inspired by the works of Vienna-based artists from the 1920s. Mock-utilitarian pieces such as sailor collars on jackets, the use of aprons and several jumpsuits added to the masculine aesthetic for which Arbesser is known. Textured knits and turtlenecks all combined with trainers for a sportier styling.
