Zandra Rhodes AW 2019/20 – The Golden Hour
Her iconic skill and status has resulted in a multitude of collaborations, most notably with Valentino for their 2017 spring/summer and resort collections. With an archive spanning 50 years and a never ending fascination with printed textile design, Dame Zandra continues to create an array of clothing and designs with her signature style.
“The season’s shapes draw inspiration from Victoriana – incorporating elegant pearl cuffs and delicate waistlines. Flamenco style ruffles adorn the garments in true Zandra style. For AW19 looks are tiered and extra frou frou. The colour palette is an ode to adding warmth to the colder months. Sangria and Straw earth tones partner with rich hues in chiffon and shimmer satin. The two-piece is reintroduced into this collection for the versatile woman, taking power dressing to new heights as eveningwear. Basking in the glow of the sunset, the Zandra Rhodes woman is ready for anything day or night.“
As she approaches her Jubilee year in 2019, her London based atelier has begun to create new collections inspired by her historical pieces while introducing new prints and shapes.
With facilities to screen print her own fabrics; garments are nurtured from conception to completion within the walls of her London studio. Continuing to work both in house and with other brands, Dame Zandra Rhodes shows no sign of relinquishing her role as one of Britain’s most significant fashion figures.
Zandra Rhodes AW 2019/20 collection, inspired by the time before sunset : The Golden Hour, when colours become warmer and the Zandra woman becomes even more empowered.
