Jewelry was kept somewhat to a minimum. Models wore chunky silver rings (one one each finger) with dreamy, metallic platform heels to match.
The pleated navy pants matched with a blue and white cutout top so perfect it looks as if it was drawn around the model was a definite stand out. The unforgettable sheer white maxi dress with white detailing over nothing but a pair of high waisted briefs was breathtaking, like some sort of mystical sea creature.
At a glance this collection is made up of beautiful simplicity, but as you look closer it is even better than that. The intricate details, soft colours and flowing silhouettes are just as wearable as they are delicate. Wearing any piece that went down the runway is certain to fulfill any dreams you had of becoming a mermaid.
Inspired by a beautiful combination of the ocean, the botanic illustrations of Ernst Haekel and Art Nouveau jewels, Alice McCall's Cruise 13/14 collection titled 'Les Galeries de Poison' was a show of allurement, magnificence and appreciation of positive and negative space.
The embroidery and cutouts that can be seen on so many Alice McCall pieces were on display again with a fresh and delicate twist. Flowing silhouettes and sweet, feminine ruffles were spread throughout the collection, sometimes paired with deep blue and pink patterns reminiscent of treasures lost at sea.
