This season continues Toni Maticevski's exploration of the poisonous flower, this time how it envelops the lover in suspicious caution. It looks at the many facets of these beautiful poisonous flowers, which have become even more exotic and abstract. More sinister and voracious. There are references of Joan Miró, as palettes are bruised and bloodied.
A mix of corals forming flowers and enveloping, almost swallowing the body. Lustful and calculated. Collages and manipulated forms, petals and natural kinks envelop the silhouette. Colours combine into lustful combinations and bring to mind the exotic of nature and the primitive.
Flora and the intensity of fragrance intoxicate shapes. Like visible scent, potions and poisons intertwine around opaque legs. Bringing sensuous notes of oleander and bird of paradise, all the while adding a tinge of simulated modernity. Highlight neon edges of palette bonded jerseys, cut away collage angles, delicate bleeding dyes and pollinated polka dots mix with flourishes of feathers, metallics, patents, and blossoming orchids.
There are myriad white gowns, which hint at that special day or momentous occasion, with simplicity in shape and organic emergence. Decorated in delicate diamante grids and asymmetric peplum blossoms, each piece speaks to a woman who adores the organic and sensuous. The refined and the elongated.
