Delpozo: The sculptural sensibility that designer Josep Font has consistently championed at Delpozo took a lighthearted turn this season. Font looked at the work of Slovenian photographer Maria Svarbova, specifically her ‘Swimming Pools’ series, which influenced the geometric tile textiles and asymmetrical ripples and flounces that popped up in the collection. Embellishments, such as cascading ruffles, intricate beading and fluffy layers of tulle, took on a playfulness, as if they were dancing on a summer breeze. Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans

Zero + Maria Cornejo: With a 20th anniversary to commemorate this year, Maria Cornejo delved into her archives to bring a fresh perspective to the organic silhouettes and bold graphic prints that have since become her signature. Opening with hits of fuchsia and closing with a myriad of stripes and crosshatch prints, the collection was easy proof for how Cornejo’s aesthetic has remained evergreen for all these years.

Gabriela Hearst: Looking to the suits of George Best, the clashing animal prints of Keith Richards and the polka dot ties favoured by Winston Churchill, Hearst sent out an elegant assortment of day-to-evening looks that were inspired by men, but still championed femininity. From fitted double-breasted suits to printed knitwear that clung to the body, each element reiterated Hearst’s signature spin on understated luxury.
