Scene setting: In an inspired move, Sies Marjan designer Sander Lak brough the fashion crowd to his front door, unveiling his latest collection where it was conceived: his studio. With the catwalk running through the atelier, the library and the studio’s reception, guests were able to get a first-hand glimpse into Lak’s processes and sources of inspiration. 

Mood board: Texture was the connective thread for spring/summer 2018. Garments boasted a wrung and wrinkled quality, whether crafted from chiffon, moleskin and satin, all achieved by putting them through a humble wash cycle.

Best in show: Distortions such as bleeding paint strokes, snagged stripes, picked up hems and twisted details gave the otherwise classic and elegant silhouettes a fresh and disruptive look. Teamed with sneaker mules and twisted booties with sculptural, exaggerated heels, the thoughtful, yet carefree collection was an alluring breath of fresh air.
