Runway looks do not live just on the runway; quite the opposite, in fact. The way models and athletes dress when they are not ‘on court’ is closely followed and much imitated. At this show, Cecilia Bönström at Zadig & Voltaire dressed her models as though they were off-duty, in comfortable jeans paired with formal clothing – all in comfortable loose sizes. The first look was significant: a black tailored coat, mannish white shirt, untied bow tie and faded grey jeans puddled over studded boots. The subsequent looks offered the same mood, with dinner jackets, formal shirts and bow ties styled with leather jackets, T-shirts and denim, tuxedos worn with denim shirts or shiny party dresses with military-inspired parkas, down jackets with neon details, woollen beanies and combat or cowboy boots.
