Camilla and Marc
July 11, 2013 London
The heart of the collection was its looks in white (and black), but there were a few colorful pieces worth calling out. Although the gold jacquard story seemed out of place—and was, indeed, a holdover from the Camilla and Marc collection shown in April, at Australia fashion week—the other attention-getting textile was a winner. The designers digitally printed onto a coated fabric, then laser-cut through it, creating a mesh. The color left on the material had a distinctive confetti effect, and the clothes made with that fabric were among the show's standouts. But the stunner here was a number in—what else?—white. There wasn't anything flashy about the V-neck silk satin dress with a bias-cut skirt of midcalf length, but it proved the adage "less is more." Malevich would be proud.
