Tobefrank designer Frank Philips’ collection showcased this afternoon at the Freemasons hall. Inspired by Charles Dickens novels, the original gentleman and the branches of her family tree which are a beautiful blend of upper and middle class lifestyles.
The first model came out wearing an open black suit jacket revealing an array of tattoos from the neck down and walking with a captivating presence that grabbed the audiences attention straight away. Models were swinging bunches of flowers by their sides as if they had been walking in a field and plucked a bunch as they walked by.
A wool hat and hand knitted oversized jumpers featured as well as buttoned up shirts in subtle block colours. A couple of thin, short chained necklaces were also spotted over the collars to add depth and diversity. Overall a variant and insightful collection.
