Bernard Chandran catwalk show report S/S 2015 for LFWFashion WeekSS15
Malaysian born designer Bernard Chandran was quick to make his mark on next season’s womenswear scene from the very opening of his spring/summer 2015 show. At first glance, Chandran’s collection appeared crisp and masculine with only faint hints of detailing, but as the show progressed to a rather apt hip-hop beat, his looks took shape in a similarly edgy manner.
Chic white ensembles featuring horizontal chiffon panelling set the pace for the show, shortly ensued with a number of simple black looks including laser cut t-shirt dresses with asymmetric hems and an elegant floor length silk georgette t-shirt dress with nonchalantly masculine pockets.
But it quickly became apparent androgyny was only a scratch on the surface of Chandran’s intentions for his latest collection as the show diverted to a demure palette of nudes and the highlighting of feminine attributes in the form of sensual chiffon bustier inserts made many a return. Illusory mosaic-style face prints also served to further this nod to womanhood and notably, it was a sleeveless A-line shift dress designed with a shimmering effervescent overlay that gave the collection its real opulence.
On the whole, from full-length bomber suits and aviator jackets to billowing maxi dresses and jumpsuits, Chandran’s spring/summer 2015 collection really does have something for everyone.
