Preen, SS14, London.

The Preen collection for Spring-Summer 2014 featured geometric textiles created in sheer, foil and opaque textures, and sometimes layered with delicate florals. While the textiles often invoked the feeling of patchwork, the effect sometimes appeared to actually be created through printing and quilting rather than through individually patchworked pieces.

These angular shapes were highlighted by simple details such as asymmetric plackets and jagged hemlines. The use of clean white as a contrast border on a darker coloured patchwork also created a nice effect, helping to define the edges of the garments.
