Not only did Roksanda Ilincic recently launch a childrenswear line, inspired by her 18 month old daughter (all miniature versions of her main collection) but the designer who stands for sleek, luxury, simple dressing took her inspiration further - she designed a pre-fall collection of chic, simple colourful pieces based around her daughter's plastic bricks.
The collection is bright - well, what did you expect with that source of inspiration, but Roksanda's a master of cut and function and these pieces are statement while being easy to wear - very modern mom. Trademark Roksanda is still there in the frills, peplums and slits, but these are used by way of contrasting colours and fabrics. Colour blocking indeed. Yet, this is the go to collection for ease of wear.
With a client list that includes Keira Knightly, Carey Mulligan, first lady Michelle Obama and the Duchess of Cambridge, Roksanda's wise to the demands of high profile working women.
Roksanda Ilincic's Pre Fall Collection is now available at Net-A-Porter
