Maticevski Resort 2016
Folds, ruffles, bustles, pleats, splits and cascading volumes of fabric, this is Australian fashion designer Toni Maticevski’s Resort 2016. This collection is a parade where the body and garment dance together.
A beautifully restrained monochromatic palette glints with metallic brocade and geometric lace, Maticevski crafts in a structured almost mathematical way, every organic fall meticulously engineered. Perhaps it’s the influence of working alongside the Australian Ballet – with its peripheral male form, sense of feminine strength and fragility and elaborate cloth creations – that brings the energy of something deliciously dangerous.
