Suboo At MBFWA Day 5
Waking up and being ready for a show by 9am is a struggle on any day at fashion week, let alone on the last day. But I am glad I made the trek to Friday’s first show where swimwear label turned ready-to-wear Suboo proved that beachside and resortwear need not be just boring old kaftans, but something that could seriously take you from beach to bar.
Starting with their swimwear Suboo relied heavily on structure using geometric prints, panelling and lines to create almost perfect silhouettes that would make any women happy to shed some clothes at the beach or pool.
Continuing into their ready-to-wear pieces the structure became less complicated but still praising the female form with large colour blocks and cut outs drawing attention to the waist and widening the hips creating hourglass shaped models and showing off Sue Di Chio’s ability to create beach wear that is also extremely wearable away from the water.
In particular, a pale mint mini dress with mesh sides and peplum skirt and a true blue jumpsuit with tan detailing that could easy be worn all day in the driest of environments really stood out.
Colourwise, the collection stuck to the code seen all week: lots of print, pale acid tones and baby hues with a focus on true and cornflower blue and yellow but it didn’t take away from the fresh appeal of the collection and the shoes, roughly textured gladiators with an acid yellow base and blue and orange straps, would certainly be a good buy to watch next seasons colour palette.
