Show after show, we are seeing a modernist vision from designers. From Karla Spetic's bright graphic prints and poppy colours, to Lisa Ho's colour spliced collection, to Magdalena Velevska's neon pin-fine pleating, it's shaping up to be a sharp edged, future-facing Summer. Michael Lo Sordo is adding weight to our theory, presenting a modern line up full of architectural shapes, minimalist silhouettes and sculptural details. Knife pleats appeared again, this time in sheer ballerina-esque skirts which grazed the floor. Sheer over sheer layers created an ethereal elegance, and long lean lines in skirts, dresses and hip grazing blazers prevailed. Tempering his clean and crisp aesthetic with touches of prettiness, Michael's collection was saved from austerity via smokey, abstract prints and pastel shades.
