Edeline Lee’s SS16 collection was a beautiful array of colours. The designer wanted to experiment with colour this season and she was inspired by the works of Richard Diebenkorn and his Ocean Parks series of paintings and by the Memphis Group a design and architecture group from Milan. The presentation kicked off London Fashion Week at the Elm Lester’s Painting Rooms with the room completely transformed to emphasise the collection.
The collection was full of colour blocking and geometric shapes in a selection of pastels including lilacs, mints, baby blues, and baby pinks. Edeline Lee paired boxy jackets with oversized pockets with shorts and skirts. The masculine silhouettes were sweetened up with Lee’s use of colour. Some models also wore an assortment of a-line dresses and skirts. The amount of techniques used by lee showed off her ingenuity. Some of these included panelling, piping, embroidery and patchwork.
What Edeline Lee had created showed her attention to detail and decision making when it comes to fashion design and design as a whole. What she produced was contemporary and wearable in all the best ways. It was a fun collection that showed off how the designer has grown over the seasons and how she will continue to do so over the years.
