Apu Jan’s collection alluded to key fashions of the 60’s with her use of high collars and slashed necklines, whilst keeping her to her uniform of chic shapes and clean cuts.
Graphic prints were a key element for both Apu Jan and Niro Wang. Where Jan showcased turquoise florals, candy pinks and all over brights, Wang presented us with stories of field workers, tools in cerulean blue, neon oranges and mustard yellows.
Linen was also flaunted in both designers’ Spring Summer looks. We saw black linen tailored trouser suits with inverted lapels at Apu Jan -masculine in shape and style, but soft and feminine in texture. Wang exhibited oversized white jumpsuits complete with drawstring waists.
Fine knits were incorporated into Niro Wang's collection, while Apu Jan flaunted her complex use of chunky knits and use of differing techniques, such as wide slip stitch, eyelet herringbone and jumbo cable.
