Elaine Hersby SS18: Sporty Chic in a Fancy Hotel

The pompous and historical interior of Hotel D’Angleterre was filled with people and anticipation. Elaine Hersby’s designs are known to be more sporty chic than what you could expect in a setting like this. Anyways, as the first beats of music hit it was clear Hersby decided to play on a bit more feminine note here.

Her real-life models walked out in the classic sporty-chic Hersby-like looks, spiced up with a bit of a girly touch. Huge ruffles, large cut outs, bows and sleek silhouettes were indeed predominant in her SS18 collection. The attitude was a bit sassy-bitch but in a good way – embracing your own skin, wearing whatever you feel like and owning it. The whole theme was enhanced even more with the closing tones of “Bitch better have my money” tune by our favorite girl Riri which definitely added this killer vibe to it and made gave the venue this oomph in terms of atmosphere.

However, the collection itself didn’t quite cut it for me. I had high expectations and based upon the really cool location I thought the collection with let my jaw drop. It was quite the opposite – the venue stunned me more than the styles. I simply felt like I’ve seen this all at Hersby’s SS17 collection. Silhouettes, cuts, and materials just were not bomb. However, most of the styles presented on the runway are easy-to-wear pieces which could become one’s wardrobe favorites, especially if you’re into simplicity paired with a stronger detail. Well, have a look yourself:
