This was all about igniting childhood nostalgia in a street-style themed collection, with Smurfs and Spiderman prints on cropped and quilted bomber jackets and coat dresses. The use of colour ranged from soft pastels to more primary tones.

With bird-like cutouts ever present on chiffon dresses and pants, the collection was monochromatic yet chic. The wide-leg grey jumpsuit with zip detail and fitted pants looked totally on point, but the story was all about dresses in varied lengths.
