INSPIRATION: Grachvogel gave us minimalism, but ditched staunch austerity in favour of delicate feminine details.

TOP LOOKS: An enveloping super-short kingfisher blue silk dress, a draped-backed blazer teamed with high-waisted palazzo pants in beige wool challis, and the ´Chrysallis´ gown with its flame-like print that draped from the shoulders.

ACCESSORIES: The aesthetic was about paring things down, so it was barely-there makeup, simple nude pumps and no jewellery please.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: It might not have ripped up the fashion rule book, but Grachvogel´s collection quietly evolves the mininalism of autumn into something altogether more fluid and sensual. The focus on drapery softens lines and enhances the female form to create a no-fuss aesthetic for easy summer elegance.
