Well, I have to admit, Narciso left me cold.
I am not one to be left cold by minimalism, but he achieved it with his spring collection.
A strong nineties feel ran throughout with spaghetti-strap dresses and ultra-simple seperates in black, white and grey, the only pattern appearing being that of blank foliage on tops and dresses.
The best pieces were the gowns, no doubt: the opening grey dress and the similar white version that were completely unembellished with anything were stunning in their simplicity, leaving the cut and the clean fabric to do the talking.
Other beautiful dresses were the panelled white number Hanne Gabbe Odiele modelled and the finale ivory parachute gown.
The only other remarkable piece was a dark tailored jacket whose only detail squarely traced the bust.
By the looks on the faces of members of the audience, they had the same thought as I did: "How unextraordinary."
While the collection felt a bit uneven, I love it for the fact that it harks back to some of my favorite Narciso collections. Some of those dresses, like the plain white satin t shirt dress on Jamie Bochert, or the gray tricolor number on Jaqueline, were absolutely stunning and so sexy.
