DION LEE AT RAFW

Lee showed a strong collection featuring some beautifully structured, papery lantern jackets with pyramid-like shoulders. Dress shapes were brief, stream-lined affairs that gave a slight nod to futurism and Hussein Chalayan. A palette of off-white, cobalt, nudey-beige and black (think Givenchy) and hey presto, one of the most directional collections of the season. Oh and a stompy looking almond-toe platform which is simply to die. Cut-outs were a-plenty, featured on a perforated leather jacket and a smart LBD, the latter more successful despite the obvious Balenciaga reference.

Zimmerman? Blurgh, Florals, draping, nipped waists, macramé swimsuits. Whatever.

Zambesi? Dull, bar one fuschia look that popped off the runway. Gimmicky holster-like binding didn’t help the cause.
