Pre-Fall 18 Influencer Show: Dondup

An easy sense of retro modernism coupled with a youthful take on the season’s emerging trends stamped the Dondup Pre-Fall collection with just the right amount of influencer show cool.

All the season’s new looks were in place in an outing that combined gamine femininity with vintage-inspired tailoring and the essential luxe sportswear vibe. Traditional checks, trenchcoats, ruffled dresses and floral prints: tick. Slouchy tracksuit, relaxed knits, easy-fit jeans and handkerchief hems: tick.

Tailored checked blazers and coats came with a zesty youthful fit that nudged them into the trend zone, teamed with mismatched patterned pleat or A-line skirts, chunky socks and sporty hiking boots. That same offbeat look teamed pailette-strewn sheers with ravaged-edge cardigans and slouchy knits.

There was a pleasingly haphazard feel to the vintage-style faux furs and floral pleat dresses, along with colour-blocked or striped grungy knits and easy boyfriend jeans. And sportswear influences were given a modern twist, too, via a slim, elastic-waisted leather parka or the silky shirt and trackpant that replaced conventional tracksuit styling.

Colour packed a youthful punch in a palette that combined poppy red, bubblegum pink, mango and lilac, tempered with the collegiate feel of racing green, navy and a pop of azure blue.
