After coming across an original 1970s necktie print from a renowned Milan fabric mill, Johnny Talbot and Adrian Runhof couldn't resist giving it a star role in their new Pre-Fall lineup. "It felt very unusual for us," explained Talbot at a preview. The geometric pattern (somewhat reminiscent of Pierre Hardy) was splashed on colorful tops, pleated skirts, and a midi-length trumpet dress—a new silhouette for the season. While compelling on its own, the graphic print simply didn't work worn head-to-toe—down to the matching socks, no less. Beyond that, the Talbot Runhof duo featured their signature draping on evening separates, and incorporated a soft napa leather into tough pieces including a body-skimming black gown, which looked modern styled with a ribbed dickey turtleneck underneath.
