The Corneliani show began as a vision in white with soft tailoring and sophisticated sportswear dominating the looks. Soft neutrals formed the colour palette, as seen on three-button jackets, double zip cardigans and grand-dad collared shirts. The collection exuded laid-back chic with a silhouette of pleated trousers and boxy tops.
MSGM continued the California spirit from last spring, complete with checked prints and relaxed silhouettes, and the introduction of youthful tailoring and denim pieces into this season's collection. Casual styling and a mixed palette of pastel and retro colours helped reinforce the theme.
It was another vision of white at Neil Barrett, who presented minimalist sportswear with a youthful edge. Barrett's forte is his outerwear, which didn't disappoint this season. On show were trucker, biker and bomber jackets as well as a summer parka. Worn with joggers, the look never strayed from luxe sportswear.
It was a Cuban inspired collection at Versace with muted pink and cigar beige colours opening the show. Tailoring was kept relaxed with a hint of sportswear coming through, while streetwear styling was evident with laser cutting and macramé effects on jean and biker jackets, injecting Versace's favoured sex appeal.
