Shortly after the show Alex Fury described Basso & Brooke's latest collection as mank (he was seated opposite me during the show, you may spy his face in some of the photos where he just refused to be edited out). Now, I wouldn't go quite that far. It wasn't exactly their best collection and it seems like they've been on a slight downward slope since my favourite early runs (the slick Japanese collection in particular!), but it still stood out in the better half of the shows I saw in London. Of course, at the time, I was loving it - prints, colours, just my thing. It's only really when I look back at my images now, though, that I kind of see Alex's point. The prints are somewhat ugly and just don't really sit properly with the shapes. It comes across a bit schizo-frumpy. The collaboration with The Cambridge Satchel Company is completely inexplicable, but I do like the Finsk shoes; love a chunky wedge, I do. Individual pieces work - a patterned blouse here, a tessellated jumper there - but I wouldn't recommend the total look...I am excited about the menswear sweatshirt launch, however. Just need to figure out where's stocking them?!xxxDuck
