The designer who is known for being a favorite among actresses and royalty alike including Gwyneth Paltrow, Diane Kruger, and the Duchess of Cambridge, did not disappoint with her latest range.
When asked about the collection Wickstead shared with Vogue UK, “I had this muse in my head of a bolshy feminist who falls in love,” the statement reigned true as the range had a romantic connotation that flowed throughout.
The range consisted of structured silhouettes with a causal sexy undertone to them. Featuring modest high necklines, voluminous sleeves, and squared off bibs that were seen on shirts, dresses, and suits, an abundant amount of check and plaid prints in hues of red, white and black with just the right amount of gold.
Additionally, the variety of designs showcased Wickstead’s signature all-in-one tailoring pieces in pleasing hues of mustard, cherry reds, rose pink with an undertone of lilac, and vivid shades of blues. Perhaps the surprise of the night was the designer’s casual pieces including, a few pair of high-waist trousers, and a large amount of knitwear that gave the show an underlying edge.
