Basso and Brooke - Autumn/Winter 09
The dynamic duo Bruno Basso and Christopher Brooke presented an extra special collection of divine prints and playful designs for their Autumn/Winter offering. Having won Fashion Fringe in September 2004, the pair have been perfecting their eccentric and individual style over the last five years. Technology is always a big inspiration for them, and this year digital printing takes centre stage throughout their work.
Style notes: The pieces are like contemporary works of art with watercolours and pastels dominating the designs. Digital prints combine for bittersweet kaleidoscope of colours and a delicious mix of ornate and primary shapes. My favourite is the pencil dress, nipped at the waist with a bright orange band, featuring eye-catching cubic art across the front - it's just beautiful.
Colour notes: Paintbox pastals, shimmering greens and industrial greys.
Gossip: One fashionista said to another "It's tacky, but still somehow tasteful!"
