These days it seems designers just can’t get enough of Britain, with Gucci’s recent show at Westminster Abbey, and Christian Dior at Blenheim Palace. Now we have Sandro, a Parisian-based label, also going the Brit-chic way with a Fall 2016 collection that references nineties London with just the right dose of femininity thrown in.
London has always had a grunge-punk attitude about it, ever since Vivienne Westwood and the Sex Pistols burst on to the scene in the seventies. In the nineties, grunge and alternative music made a come back and brought with it flannel shirts, combat booties and leopard printed everything.
Sandro has clearly taken inspiration from this era, intertwining it with touches of Parisian luxury, as seen in the tiger embroidery on silk bomber jackets, leopard printed fur coats and lace slip-dresses over denim jeans, which give the outfits a rebellious, if still sartorial vibe.
As huge fans of the new rock ‘n’ roll trend, we’ve picked out ten of our favourite looks from Sandro’s Fall 2016 collection, and trying very hard not to head out and buy them all now.
