It’s a refreshing new look in the increasingly homogenized world that is Planet Fashion, as influencer designer follow the lead set by Alessando Michele at Gucci by introducing a sense of playful individualism into the constant merry-go-round of collections.

Here it is less about quirky print and fabric mixes and more about rethinking conventional silhouettes by breaking the rules with an emphasis on exaggerated proportions. Think cartoon-like shoulders and ballooning sleeves, playful A-line shapes over wide flared pants or cocooning sweaters tucked incongruously into full pleated pants.

It’s all about thinking outside the box and using unexpected proportion play and offbeat colour blocking to create strong architectural silhouettes with more than a sense of fantasy.
