The ‘Undines’ were the inspiration for Irynvigre SS17 at Fashion Scout. These mythical elemental beings associated with water – think nymphs and mermaids – gave us a collection of ethereal looks, some of which seemed to hang magically from models without any apparent support. Flowing fabrics, wet hair and aqua/silver eye shadow continued the watery theme, along with waves of fabric ruffles and abstract coastal prints. Metallic jackets, dresses and trousers introduced a moving, tidal feel and the ebb and flow of colours transported us through light pastel shades, transparent sheers and, eventually to sea urchin spine black. The looks, together with the staging and choreographing of the show, left behind a feeling of having plumbed the magical depths.
