Show report: Apu Jan Fashion Scout SS17 London Fashion Week
Apu Jan SS17
Ruffles seemed to be everywhere for SS17 at Fashion Scout, including at Apu Jan. Here they were petite, adding texture to scarves and silhouette to dresses. They appeared alongside 3D flowers and dramatic, floor sweeper hemlines, a crochet hat carried over from AW16 and intricately detailed prints. Revealing knits were a theme – ribbed black crops and almost sheer electric blue knit dresses – but so were modest silhouettes such as lightweight summer jackets and simple, full skirted dresses, off the shoulder or sleeveless. The colour palette was blue, black and white – or shades thereof - and every model wore the same pair of simple, white shoes. There is always something very consistent about Apu Jan – from use of colour, to the way the silhouettes change -, sitting through the showing of a collection is like watching a very satisfying evolution unfold.
