Inspiration, from Hockney’s distinctive use of colour to his technique and brushstrokes, was evident in the painterly prints on very wearable pleated skirts, wide cropped trousers, wrap shirts, metallic accents, and full-sleeved frocks. Gan’s timeless yet modern collection incorporated elements of comfort and statement style, using clever fabric manipulation in non-formfitting silhouettes.
With fearless pairings of clashing prints, combining subtle repetitive patterns with daring splashes of abstract colour, Cassey Gan’s aesthetic was immediately recognisable. These were applied to collarless tunics paired with loose fitting ankle-grazing cropped trousers and gently ruched oversized sleeves, styled with a relaxed interpretation of the pencil skirt with wavy hems and multiple prints. SS19’s looks formed a cohesive collection that blended seamlessly, accessorised throughout with flat white espadrilles and cork totes for a fresh take for summer. Placing equal importance on comfort and style, the brand’s timeless yet modern aesthetic focusses on details and functional design; the result is both polished and casual, in oversized silhouettes perfect for day or night.
