When the show notes say the collection is about people who live for the weekend, you know the music is gonna be good. For SS17 Molly Goddard took us on a nostalgia trip to 90s New York rave culture, as documented by Nick Waplington in his recent photo book.
Goddard’s signature smocking and gathering was omnipresent in voluminous dresses, this time updated in gingham checks and neons and accompanied by rainbow stripe knits and photo print tees. It’s that very real, practical sense of dressing for dancing; sexy but layered with a bit of sportswear thrown in.
The music? Suitably loud, dancey and trancey. After filing down the catwalk, the models piled onto a strobe-lit podium with arms aloft for the finale (although they had clearly never been to a rave, their delicate swaying was far too ethereal!). Tuuuune!
