Highlights from MBFWA – Gary Bigeni

I’ll cut to the chase. I really loved the Gary Bigeni show.

His thoughtful, carefully-constructed collection oozed a kind of monastic purity through the use of neutral colour, crisp cottons from Italy and Japan, oversized yet tailored proportions, and beautiful fuss-free draping.

The show opened with a stunningly understated grey and white striped look that consisted of a full maxi skirt and matching high-necked blouse (below left). The puritan feel was consistent throughout the rest of the collection which featured modestly draped skirts, zen-like tunics and relaxed pants.

Patterning was limited to only a couple of looks, and did not escape the palette of white, black, blue and grey. Models glided down the runway wrapped in skirts and shirts, proportions were cinched by karate-style wide fabric belts and flat sandals.

According to the show notes, “With a reputation for masterful drape, intelligent silhouettes and sophisticated use of colour; it’s easy to be seduced by the quiet confidence exuded by the Gary Bigeni label.” Couldn’t agree more!

In a collection, aptly named “Owned” the knockout of the show was for me, the final look – a floor length white dress that was once again simple and elegant. The ultimate understated summer gown. Beautiful.

    These don’t really appeal to me.
