Preen by Thornton Bregazzi
February 16, 2014 London
As for the rest of the Preen collection? Well, there was quite a bit to like here: the frothy tesseract-print dresses, the parkas with gargantuan fur hoods, the looks in a cheering clementine hue, the lamé shirtdresses at the close of the show. Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi cut some very nice trousers this season, and their incorporation of trim, ribbed-knit skirts into looks made for an appealing silhouette proposition. On the other hand, that Darth Vader head kept showing up on the clothes, and if that wasn't your jam, then this collection would have a hard time winning you over, no matter its charms.
