Craig Green SS15

There are a few rare young designers that don't need to shout to be heard. What Green achieved today was a breathtakingly beautiful silent protest. Everything was stripped away – colour palettes, fabrics and textures – to allow for drama in the movement. Models walked down the runway with angular wooden sculptures balanced precariously behind their heads, loosely tied fabric sheets floating from the structures like a flag with threads trailing in their wake. Fashion, as of late, has been spoon-fed to its audience, overwhelmed by obvious references, easy minimalism and satiable motifs that rack up the likes on Instagram. Green's show was a welcome counterbalance to that, proving that there is still beauty in honesty and a complexity in purity.
