IN A NUTSHELL: Daniela Felder said of her Blonde collection, "We wanted to create a visually vibrant collection that at the same time gives a feeling of spontaneity and confidence". The design duo looked to Ryan McGinley's geological imagery for print and colour palette inspiration, which leant to soft, floaty fabrics in strong, warm, earthy shades.

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: The rock and cave prints were stunning but it was the skater skirts and flowing maxi dresses in gold and red that caught our eye. 30s inspired crepe dresses with beaded detailing added a touch of glamour to the otherwise grungy collection but that's not forgetting the chunky metallic platforms by Kat Maconie. Who cares if you can't walk in them?

VERDICT: The use of texture in this show was incredible. Knitwear, fur, crepe, lame, you name it... this eclectic mix definitely made this collection "visually vibrant". Yet what we loved the most about this collection is that overall, it was empowering yet wearable, without being too in-your-face.
