My favourite kind of fashion is birthed by mixing contrasting pop culture references, which Ashley Williams of course does so well. In the AW20 offering, we were treated to cutesy prom style puff dresses with pink dollar bills, along with air spray portraits of Einstein and Mona Lisa on fringed dresses and tops.
These were powerful party looks infused with an air of not having to even try. 00s fashion was a key reference point and we re-witnessed the debut of the Samsung Galaxy flip phone for all our life affirming throwback needs. There was such a carefree aura surrounding the whole collection, typified with a nonchalant slogan of, ‘IN DOG YEARS I’M DEAD’, on one of the sweatshirts, which was such lovely tongue-in-cheek reference to how life is measured through perspective.
