The realization that his customer is a high-polish kind of gal who has more places to go than black-tie events has taken Brandon Maxwell to a more relaxed take on what remains his unapologetic embrace of traditional glamour. To that end, for his 2018 presentation, he reintroduced last season’s jeans which were a hit but were worn with perfectly constructed tops such as a cutaway jacket with defined shoulders. He also showed a broadened range of curvy knits, while sexy bodycon dresses bridged the span from day to night.
The collection was sleek, chic, unapologetically fabulous with hints, little twists and turns, in the styling and the details that give it that extra cowboy-boot kick. Teensy tiny purses “that can hold a lighter or some cash” came in the form of cross-body Bijoux pineapples. There was a certain ’80s aura to one-shouldered or column dresses, both in resplendently bright but simple colours. Gigi Hadid closed the show in a twinkling ball skirt paired with a black knit hoodie, and it was superb!
