Sibling, Womenswear Show, Autumn/Winter 2015/16, London

The three creators, Joe Bate, Sid Bryan and Cozette McCreery play with materials to give a new allure to classic pieces. Knitwear is ever-present, taking different aspects, inviting itself even onto latex, or designed as original patterns. A skirt suit is given a new life in tweed and knitted lurex, shift dresses are embellished with knitted decoration, and multiple references to the work of Stephen Sprouse give an “arty” touch to certain pieces. The colours are a reflection of this collection, energetic and stimulating, daring occasionally to mix even the most incongruous.
