Report by Harriet Quick, Editorial Director, Luxup
Clements Ribeiro is on fine form, galvanising its signature colour, print and nonchalant take on chic in a collection poetically titled Moonrise Kingdom, in homage to Wes Anderson’s film of the same name. The label’s muse? Suzy Bishop, the film’s 12-year-old lead character, who is very much in love with Paris and the style of Forties resistance heroines. Striped fine knits, checked silk skirts and sweet floral appliqué collars appeared in a charming line-up, where the silhouette was loose and easy – think paper-bag taffeta skirts – while floral and Hawaiian-print shirtwaisters and all-in-ones were topped with sweet cloche hats. Sheer polka-dot pussy-bow blouses were flirty, and a floral-print sheath dress looked like the kind of piece one
would wear all summer, from dawn to moonrise. And remember Jellies? Clements Ribeiro reprised them
as the footwear of choice in vibrant shades, and the
stripy tote bags had “take me for a walk with my lover on the Seine (or Thames)” all over them.
