Words by Matt Huxley
Have you ever wondered what Mary Lennox would be wearing if The Secret Garden was set in the 21st century? Well now you know. We Are Kindred presented a sophisticated, romantic and insouciant collection that answers that very question.
Wisteria-hued bishop sleeved dresses and blouses drifted down the runway, anchored by floral handkerchief hem slips. Dame Edna eat your heart out. An accordion-pleated sky-blue two-piece with japanesque floral motifs was a clear highlight.
The early 00s made a triumphant return with halter-neck wide-leg jumpsuits and handkerchief hems. But don’t think that you’ll look tragic a-la Britney and Justin. These are chic, elegant designs that will make a luxurious addition to your wardrobe.
A slouchy lace two piece was another highlight. The perfect mix between daywear and night(y) wear. We Are Kindred takes pyjama dressing to an entire new level, and I for one am damn thrilled. Ps this was one of my top 3 shows. XOXO
