SABINA BRYNTESSON | SPRING / SUMMER 2013
Sabina Bryntesson presented an offering of clean lines, sleek tailoring and chic simplicity for her Spring / Summer 2013 collection. Soft lemon yellows, stone greys and cool blues made for a calming seasonal palette.
Loose-fitting and oversized pieces ensured the collection was comfy and ready-to-wear. Long starched white shirts came sleeveless and high-collared, elongated apron-like panels flowed past waistlines and added interest to otherwise simplistic ensembles.
Extra panelling over a sorbet yellow ankle-grazing skirt harked to the skirt-over-trouser trend which carried throughout Fall / Winter 2012. Oversized charcoal sweaters were worn as capes over ankle-length dresses. Long jersey T-shirt dresses were teamed up with turtleneck shirts. Each look was completed with a raindrop shaped cap with prominent peaks.
The collection, a continuation from her MA work, was inspired by Sunday Churchgoers and religious dress. Voluminous sleeves, large collars and stepped hems created a powerful silhouette. Soft, sheer feminine dresses were buoyed up with masculine layering.
After the runway show, models arranged themselves on platforms (as if they were mannequins on display in a store) for a static exhibition. On closer inspection there were rolled hems and well thought out pleats, echoing the level of attentiveness the Central Saint Martins graduate puts into her work.
