WORLD Black Tie White Noise
We take a sneak peek at the upcoming summer collection from WORLD, Black Tie White Noise. It's so hard to pick from such an outstanding collection, but here are our favourites...
With its trademark flair for mixing what may seem as completely different worlds (no pun intended), this summer WORLD compares and contrasts - as high school essays put it - formal high fashion and street style.
Benny Castles of WORLD says, "The collection was a design-based examination of modern formalities within fashion, incorporating both historic detailing and contemporary character across a range of garments, set to suit an informed clientèle of individuals."
"All areas of the collection within the Male and Female divisions are intertwined with bright colours and a brigade of prints set against core garments in block colours littered with both subtle and exaggerated design elements."
This historic detailing can be seen in the pieces with names such as the Edwardian and Prussian Princess jackets.
The WORLD Couture label shows even more extravagance. The concept of 'formal femininity' is further explored in "50’s shapes with Victorian sensibilities, juxtaposed with Jazz Age and Disco inspired sequin and satin knit gowns, with a star emblazoned lurex quilted Jacket."
