The Whyred Woman collection for AW16 pays homage to the UK indie guitar scene in the early 80’s and while the collection reflected a little bit more rock glam than punk the attitude present on the runway made up for it.
In a typical rock’n’roll fashion, the collection seemed at first glance to lack cohesion but similarly to good music influences from different periods could be pinpointed for a harmonious whole.
With the independent, emancipated woman in the forefront of all looks, Whyred also visited the current Nordic trend of the androgynous look; double-breasted coats and tweed suits; slim fit trousers and long dresses with intricate pleating and shimmering textures combining classic silhouettes with the punk-glam-rock of the 80’s.
The colour palette could best be described as one of twilight foliage; black; warm browns, beige and maroon; with forest green, bright and rusty orange, purple and royal blue to add dimensions to the tailoring of the garments.
