Womenswear apparel is transformed into a blank canvas this season, making for directional forms of creative expression in mono colors. An Art Nouveau influence is demonstrated with delicate florals and portraits, as scribbled surfaces lend a playful touch to detailing. Multicoloured patterns also can be utilized for a bolder impact on styles like structured dresses.

In men’s fashion, we see a city-inspired graphic theme stripped back with illustrative prints, monochrome colorways and linear patterns. Graphics are also key, on show with influential motifs like industrial engineering and urban skylines. This trend lends a statement feel to clean shirts and tees.
