Mood board: A lot always happens on a Sacai runway but Spring was particularly packed with choice options for the woman who loves to hybrid dress. Things began with a tribal motif and ended on a Jimi Hendrix Black Panther power note but in between we saw all manners of striping – from 19th century simple bedlinen stripes to bold umbrella stripes, preppy sailor stripes and even businessman pin stripes along with houndstooth and tartan plaids.

Best in show: The best of the mix were the new camouflage jacquards that glowed brilliantly in sassy asymmetrical skirts as well as a great segment on pyjama dressing that showed that banal silhouette amped up on huge wide legged pants and matching striped tops.

Finishing touches:
Headgear was big at Sacai – from enormous feathered headdresses to military berets. Just as fierce was the footwear, which saw hiking boots redux as shiny black patent leather platforms with lug soles.
