IF a teddy bear bag got everybody excited last season, Ashley Williams did well to give us a hammerhead shark this time around to keep the conversation going.
She had envisioned a tongue-in-cheek take on Eightes nautical living – so one-piece swimsuits had “DreamBoat” slashed across the front and one pair of trackpants shouted “S.O.S” down one leg. A motor-boat print smothered teeny weeny bikinis, while an enlarged snakeskin design was interrupted by neon orange snails on one dress.
It felt surreal and vaguely haphazard – but was pulled together by lovely grey wool coats and skirts with large pleated sporrans at the front. She’s already stocked in Colette and she’s clearly here to stay.
