Retro Pop Colours at Roksanda Ilincic

Roksanda Ilincic, RST12, London.

The recent Resort 2012 collection from Roksanda Ilincic is full of exaggerated shapes and crisp, eye-popping colours. The palazzo pants and draped tops channel the elegance of the 1930s, picking up a little of the 1970s along the way, while the cocoon shaped raglan sleeves have a more futuristic look to them. The colour palette is filled with luminous citrus tones, offset by bright blues and pure white and these tones are used to consistently offset each other, with contrast waistbands and bound edges adding vibrant hits of colour and making the pieces vibrate.

The fabric choices have obviously been specifically chosen to support the designs. Light but rigid fabrics provide crisp structures where needed to provide bouncy peplum ruffles and shapes that sit away from the body. These more structural pieces are balanced out by the softness of the draped garments, that wrap around the body and gather gracefully around the shoulder and wrists of the longsleeve pieces.
