Molly Goddard released her latest collection as seen at the ongoing London Fashion Week. The collection is a mirror for when you have grand ideas but you’ve quickly got to recognise there’s a need for the sprinkle of reality.
According to the designer:
“I was thinking about Tess of the d’Urbervilles – and a million other references, too…”
As the models made their way down the runway, gorgeous tulle and taffeta dresses with stunning effects were paired with balaclavas, tailored trousers and sturdy boots. Molly Goddard wanted a combination that was fantastic with a practical and protective element. Well, she did end up with a voluminous tiered magenta ball gown that we’d say fits her vision perfectly.
As much as we’d love to be excited about this intentionally sturdy collection, it’s no Jeremy Scott. Molly fell flat in some styling aspects, especially where models walked out in layered mismatched looks – cardigans over stripe dresses and clashing scarves. There was a lot of effort put into the collection but this part felt like the models were dressed by a novice 6-year-old.
There were tulle dresses with fluttery sailor collars that had our approval. The elegant elbow-length sleeves, lightweight sculptured tulle dresses with knotted ties across the front and little pouf skirts, were also among some of the best looks. The collection also offered long and lean coats with waist-hugging pleats or bows knotted across the front. While some reviewers have likened the collection to a “19th-century Thomas Hardy heroine” we find that its extra layers and volumes make it uniquely interesting.
Here’s a look at select pieces from the collection…
