A collection inspired by the designer’s “boarding school years”. At first, we find the navy blue of schoolgirl uniforms in woollen cloth with precious enamel buttons. The knit is just as prim and proper, but in appearance only, and the mid-knee length skirts are not quite as austere as they seem… The evening blouses and dresses in flowing silk and Lurex add a more sophisticated touch to the collection.
