Slim-cut, lean tailoring, reminiscent of the 1960s, was updated with its lightweight construction and highly breathable Merino wool fibres, making it relevant for today’s younger wearer. The designer’s message of peace and positivity, meanwhile, was evidenced in the bright colour palette of yellow, green, red and stripes, which spilled onto the runway itself, and was shown in tartan wool knitwear and v-neck collegiate-style wool sweaters.
