Irish designer, Richard Malone kicks off London Fashion Week 2018 with a brightly coloured Spring/Summer 2019 collection made from microfibre and dye-free fabrics in hues ranging from lime to blue and gold to magenta. The designer proved once again that the use of sustainable materials can be fashionable.
The collection featured bags made from recycled tarpaulin from the sides of trucks, provided by sustainable label Freitag. The figure-hugging pieces were made from Econyl – a sustainable nylon fabric that can be reused and repurposed. These contrasted with the lightweight double-faced satin that made up the majority of the collection.
As the models made their way down the runway, tight tops and biker trousers alternated with looser fitting dresses with details of fringes, laces and nets making repeated appearances. Known for his outspoken support of women rights, Richard Malone indeed celebrates the feminine shape without being too aggressive: his garments make quite a statement. They may not be designed for daily wear but their originality cannot be denied.
Here’s a look at the collection…
