Boss creative director Jason Wu was beginning to let loose last season, injecting floral prints and plissé into the German brand’s rigour. For winter, the revolution is even more marked and, aside from the flowers decorating dresses and coats, soft lines were emphasised by undulating silk strips over the surfaces of tops, coats and extra-long tunics or in multi-coloured needle-punched fabric that stood out, for example, on a black turtleneck. Even the more minimal and monochrome looks tended towards fluidity, as with the flared skirts and soft trousers, while the effect of shredded chiffon bonded to sequins on the final dresses created not only movement but also a truly surprising rough bouclé effect.
