Show report: Apu Jan Fashion Scout AW16, London Fashion Week
APU JAN’S AW16 collection continued a run of consistently thoughtful and intricately detailed designs, pushing boundaries, but with restraint. Contemporary knits propelled the designer’s signature fabric into new realms, particularly the wistful, oversize crochet hats with scalloped brims. Dungaree-topped tailoring was worn with bare skin, dresses hugged curves and the midi length prevailed. Colours focused on navy and black, complemented by elegant floral prints and splashes of bright coral. We loved the floor sweeping coats, which had drama, elegance and contemporary silhouettes all rolled into one, as well as the surprise crops and - of course - those hats.
