Alexi Freeman Spring/Summer

Seeing Alexi Freeman's collections in person is always a pleasure. And while the Spring/Summer 2010 lookbook perfectly conveys the understated elegance of the pieces, there are finer details that are only really seen up close. Layerings of mesh fabrics in contrasting colours lead to a unique shimmering effect; while what appears to be a simple black singlet from the front is turned around to reveal a sheer mesh back. Relaxed fits can lean to either a sporty or a more glamorous aesthetic depending on how you dress them, and the bold melon-coloured pieces - while not for the faint hearted - are striking in real life.
