An apple a day

They’re back. Easton Pearson returned to the runway at SAFW after quite sometime off (terribly busy and important in Paris it seems) with the most magical collaboration I’ve seen in quite some time.

With a nod to the hand painted fabric obsession we have seen so much of in Europe this year these BRISBANE girls brought us a mystical, rainbow palate of colour and extravagance. Layers of jewel coloured silks, satins, dipped feathers and hand sewn embroidery accessorized with the most extraordinarily head pieces of flowers, fruit and fernery. Some might say just too extreme and some what fancy dress (ah la Carmen Miranda), I say, simply stunning and let's raid grandmas fake fruit bowl (have I lost the plot? Possibly yes).

The highlight for me was the bouffant, pink, bubbled hemmed organza gown with the prettiest soft, printed black sheer overlay (above) – Get Thee To The Ball…….

Wow what a cool collection, I love the headwear as well though I think people would look at you a bit crazy if you were to wear it out.

The fruity accessories are so fun and add edge to the looks.
