ROKSANDA: S/S 2017 READY-TO-WEAR
“A song to summer” was how Roksanda Ilincic summed up her new collection today, a fitting description for clothes that had the languid elegance of a lazy afternoon in mid-July. [...]
Color-blocking is an integral part of Ilincic’s process, and this season she floated the idea of layering up with whimsical prints as well. A long, flowy tunic was worn over a skirt covered in a horse-and-flower motif—a charming update on Fall’s moon-and-stars pattern—that fluttered at side slits and had a flattering lightness. Indeed, it felt as if Ilincic had injected a breath of airiness into all her signature voluminous silhouettes, whether it was in billowing silk satin sleeves or a dress tied up with ribbons across an open back.
