There were restrained touches throughout this collection but it still managed to be beautiful in its execution. It featured the usual stunning beadwork and creative director Josep Font is still repping his love of all things floral, particularly through his use of wisteria which turned up in headpieces, on garments and as embellished touches.

We didn’t unconditionally love everything that was shown. We felt there were some unnecessary touches like the bows on the trousers and the swaths of cloth draped over the models’ bodices read as overly ornamental. Font is fond of architectural dressing and therefore his clothes are usually quite substantial and streamlined but this collection was a lot lighter (in terms of fabrics) than usual, a result of Font taking his inspiration from the work of Murano glass artist Fulvio Bianconi.
