Like last year, I've been trying to stall my Fashion Week diaries to ensure that you aren't bombarded with Fashion Week content all at once. Day two was home to a number of our favourite shows of the week (namely Michael Lo Sordo, Cameo and Maticevski) but was also the beginning of my downwards spiral of fashion week-related sloth. This begin with skipping all of my night time shows on day 2 (whoops!) x

Our day began with Michael Lo Sordo. Invariably, throughout the show I was in awe of the effortless-looking masterful construction of each piece and the seemingly uncoordinated layering of the pieces that mystically worked together so harmoniously. In a nutshell, the collection centred around taking traditionally highly structured, rigid silhouettes and reconstructing them into something fluid, relaxed and flowing, combined with playfully feminine silhouettes at low doses and a deliciously pastel-palette.

The We are Handsome show is best described by coco cabana meets an african safari. The show seemed to be an extension of previous collections, featuring natural yet seemingly mystical photographic animal prints. The show was vibrant, full of life (literally) and my only regret was that I didn't get the opportunity to play with that adorable snake :'(.
The Cameo show was miraculously an amalgamation of mine and Tas's favourite clothing elements. The show beautifully progressed from geometric prints, to pieces with neon undertones and accents, to fully fledged neon pieces, to kaleidoscopic prints, to breton stripes and airy sheer pieces. Admittedly I am an incredibly biased spectator. I'm incapable of looking at a collection objectively. I only have eyes for what I would love to see myself in and this collection was abundant in such pieces!

The Maticevski show gravitated from monochromatic pieces to candy pinks to a flurry of tinsel-esque glimmer, neon orange, florals and geometric prints. However, the individual pieces in the collection did not seem disparate at all - they were all held together by Maticevski's breath-taking sculptural-esque craftsmanship that made each piece in the collection allude to a fantastical fairy-tale realm.
