My niece got married on April 2 (to tattoo artist extraordinaire Jack Pearce) and her dress really reminded me of how far wedding dresses have come in the past few decades. And of how much more strongly they relate to eveningwear than the white satin crinolines of old… Thank goodness.
I wasn’t bowled over by Tommy Hilfiger’s AW16 collection with its slightly cheesy nautical theme. But the SS16, now that was another matter. The festival-ready, beach-ready mix of crochet and cotton, culturally appropriated motifs and exuberant colours was one of the winers of last September’s round of runway shows.
