Review - TogaReview
I debated whether I had time to get across town to Kings Cross to view Japanese label Toga’s AW 18 collection Unwrap, Typical, Release, but the trip was definitely worth it.
I loved every single second, as the whole show was a visual delight that took the best elements of the 80s and turned them into contemporary looks. The collection featured many-layered, highly detailed looks with coats, blazers, pleated skirts, delicate dresses, and pantsuits. Toga heavily featured vintage-inspired printed silk scarves and reworked them as layering pieces, blouses, linings and in pleating – making me want to rush out and replicate the look but knowing that I could never pull it off with the grace and refinement that Toga did. Therefore, I will be watching Matches and Feathers, whose buyers I saw sitting front row, in the hope that they have selected many of the gorgeous pieces I have put on my wish list.
For this post I struggled to pick just 1 or 2 images so within this post are some of my favourite looks.
