MBFWA – Bec & Bridge Resort 2014
‘She glides into view, as if cutting through water, sleek, shimmering, statuesque…’
This season, Bec & Bridge take the plunge back to the 1990′s (when I was born!) featuring minimalist dress shapes, high-fronted, bias-cut mixed with form-fitting styles with longer lines. The focus of the collection was on the body, complimented by racer-back tops and dresses, panelled skirts and drawstring waistlines.
The fabric was light and airy providing a fluid silhouette as it glided down the gorgeous runway, equipped with its own installation of light above – almost like the backbone of the collection. I enjoyed the pearl like sheen and texture to the fabric, almost looking like fish scales! The lightweight knits were a favourite of mine, also were the dresses with in-built bras for a sense of effortless layering – even appearing on Natalie Cantell snapped up by international street style photographer for Style.com, Tommy Ton.
Backstage, ghd hair director, Alan White put the final touches to this glorious collection with an origami-inspired knot at the back of the head, with a kiss of pearl essence on the ends. White described this as ‘sexy, youthful and sophisticated, but not at all uptight – this hairstyle is easily relatable.’ During the week there were replays of backstage footage scattered across The Hub at Carriageworks – I was mesmarised by this hair!
