Manuela Dack presented a capsule collection of minimalist, white pieces in her Spring Summer ’13 offering. Whilst the collection was mainly mono-tone, diversity was established through interest fabrics and textures. Dack used silks and leathers which reflected light in contrasting ways, whilst a stunning pastel coloured fringed skirt offered a break in the white.
Jelly shoes, not usually a personal favourite, were paired by Manuela Dack with the elegant pieces. And surprisingly these holographic JuJu jelly shoes added a refreshing spin to the elegantly cut evening attire. They offered a younger edge to what threatened to be a too-grown up debut collection from the Central Saint Martins’ graduate.
