Molly Goddard took the London Fashion Week to present her Fall Winter 16 collection.
For Autumn Winter 2016, Molly Goddard continues to re imagine classic and well known fabrics in new dimensions and elevates them to Couture-like qualities. Goddard focuses on fabrication, taking inspiration directly from the fabrics she has sourced and the methods of manipulation used. Exploring volume and how much fabric can be manipulated into one garment, Goddard investigates the concept of ‘Couture’ in a modern sense. Her well known tulles are found mixed with printed corduroy, organza, taffeta and workwear fabrics in burnt orange, black and varying shades of pastel. Coats are introduced, their smock style mirroring Goddard’s voluminous dresses, which are layered over separates and silk slips – a nod to her interest in mixed materials. As always, hand-craft is at the centre of her collection. However for AW16, this detail is viewed in a new light by presenting the garments in a surrealist modern setting: the presentation takes shape as an abstracted, theatrical world inspired by the cult yakuza film classic ‘Tokyo Drifter’. This season the street-cast models have grown up and watched old couture salon shows on youtube, the grandeur and ceremony passed down. – from Molly Goddard
