Depending on your coordinates, fall weather may or may not be upon you, but don’t fret the cool breeze: London Fashion Week brought the focus back to the summer heat and the bright, vibrant clothing that it brings. Although hot weather is an entire season away, the fashion outlook is very promising. Look to the land down under for sunny inspiration; Australia’s Josh Goot show was rife with eye candy.
The 29-year-old designer’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection is what happens when space-age meets a box of particularly vibrant crayons. Goot showed dresses in electric hues and graphic patterns, sticking with classic silhouettes, but straying from the norm entirely in his colour palate. Goot was body conscious with his designs and introduced pieces that accentuate a woman’s natural curves with piping and patchwork in flattering block patterns.
The shape of Goot’s designs remained relatively simple, the genius was in the colour. The scheme of the show was impressive, an electric tangerine was particularly eye popping, especially when paired with a neutral black and white graphic print. And just when one starts to think that Josh Goot is a man of the future, he slammed down a sky blue silk banker shirt tucked into a classic black and white polka dot A-line skirt.
Goot launched his private label in 2004, and soon after, won the award for Tiffany & Co’s Young Designer of the Year in 2005. Check out the designer’s full scope of work here.
