Ports 1961 Woman Autumn-Winter 2016 – For Ports 1961, Natasa Cagalij’s AW collection remained centred in boyish nonchalance, with an essence of Yohji Yamamoto. Sneakers who had yet to debut in Milan this AW were paired with almost every monochromatic outfit.
The silhouette was slouchy with a trail of tassels and ribbons flailing behind. It was quite sportswear in influence, toeless socks were worn over peeptoe boots in near-80s flair, and detachable puffy sleeves created slits near the armpits.
Some more structural pieces appeared in the form of plunging dresses knee length dresses. Chiffon peplums injected softness into the rigidness of boxy suits, whilst mesh and satin were layered together for performance fabric feel.
Fluid silks were flung on above the knee silhouettes, whilst the palette delved into molten golds and raisins. Warmer fabrics of Mohair, fur and sheepskin, appeared in coats and jumpers.
Satin shirt dresses were lined with chiffon and tulle. Despite the minimalistic aspects of the collection, the deconstruction of fabrics coupled with the slits and cuts contained and experimental edge.
