The 70s are fundamental to Roksanda Illincic’s universe, but where previous seasons have focused on the silky, satiny salon dresses of the disco era, her SS13 collection explored a rather different corner of the decade. A nod to the work of Josef Albers – the twentieth century artist best known for his extraordinary colour combinations – Illincic’s collection was defined by a handful of colours from burning reds to deep blues, the grouping of which resulted in a very defined expression that really didn’t need a lot of other fireworks around it to work. In that sense SS13 was a stripped-down take on the rich, rich glamour we’ve come to expect from Illincic. Rooted in the musical Northern Soul movement 70s’ Britain, it had a very cool vibe about it, which in certain cases seemed more country than urban. Laid-back glamour.
