Mother of Pearl show deserves double the plaudits, because not only did Amy Powney unearth the 1989 film anthology New York Stories, comprised of shorts by Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen, and Martin Scorsese, but she made terrific use of that source material, to boot. Powney typically likes to inject her Mother of Pearl collections with a bit of bad taste, usually the sort plucked from stereotypical lower-class aesthetics; this season, intermingling ideas extracted from the three shorts, she turned her attention to clichés at the other end of the class spectrum. The results were hugely appealing. Commencing the Spring Summer 2017 collection, Mother of Pearl’s Crimson Rose Kitty skirt. It is crafted to sit on the waistline, lengthening with detailed pleats. With an eye-catching crimson rose print, this skirt is the ultimate must-have for any day-to-evening occasion and can be perfectly finished with slip on mules. Embellished with a flat pleated skirt and contrasting print, Mother of Pearl’s mixed print long-sleeved Andres dress is made for elegant evening affairs. It’s meticulously crafted in the UK to a floor-skimming silhouette – note how the hem falls slight longer at the back – and is finished with a high neckline. Style it with a folded clutch and stilettos after nightfall. Closing the SS17 collection, is the striking serpent rose print Euna dress. It’s cut from smooth stretch-crepe, and finished with flawlessly crew neckline and mini-length hemline. Wear yours with classic black accents to ensure maximum impact.
