Runway Report: Sally LaPointe SS19

Taking her cue from a comic book her husband gave to her four years ago, Sally LaPointe used the fusing of the past and future storyline to build her SS19 collection. Known for her color blocking, and sequinned embellishments, LaPointe’s ready-to-wear range subtly mimicked that of a cartoon aesthetic. Models donned the catwalk with slick down hair as if it was drawn on, and translucent anoraks made for emphasized reflection details on the page.

Lame-checked, high-waisted trousers were paired with a latte hued knit, followed by a matchy-matchy dual of grey-shaded, star print denim combo which had an air of Americana to it. To end with, the creative put out a midnight navy, sparkly midi dress with 3/4 length sleeves, and a vinyl patent jacket. The color palette of choice was peach sorbet, glistening navy, coffee hues, ripe raspberries, custard, and cream. A range that is oh so wearable, and a little playful.
