DAKS: The Art Deco Collection // London Fashion Week

Last Friday at London Fashion week, DAKS showed its SS16 collection and it was as beautifully put together as always. Founded in 1894, it keeps its British heritage well with its house check and colour palette, yet adds modernism with digital prints.

With the window-check and marble prints making an appearance in this collection, it gave the structured look to DAKS that we know and love but the flow of the fabric it was printed on, added elegance and softness to the collection.

The main colours used were purple, black, white and brown. During the catwalk to set the scene they played a lovely track that made you feel like you were sitting in Paris, with a glass of whatever you fancy, in a venue that had a glass ceiling so all the daylight flooded in, making the summer feeling even more realistic.

The collection had a mix of jumpsuits, beautifully tailored suits and dresses, that had a mixture of soft, flowing, silks that were then paired with suede skirts, dresses and panels of tan and black. This added a shape to the model yet the suede was quite thin so it wouldn’t actually be that hot to wear in the summer.

The only full suede look was a “little black dress” which even though was quite short, the suede keeps it from flowing up, also keeping the structure of silhouette.
