Miss Sixty continues to love the skinny jeans; the high waist trouser has succumbed to the eternal following of the classic low-rise. As waist lines drop, hemlines are raised creating a smaller, tighter, racier skinny. Dark denims and bright yellows were a common feature as were studded booties and edgy strapped sandals. Zips, chains and dark washed denims were the order for the day when matched with cowl necks, balloon tops and retro embellishments.

The models emerged barefaced with unkempt hair, a popular style among young Hollywood starlets and a frequent due embraced by Kate Moss. A grey masculine tuxedo jacket with cropped sleeves paired with worn grey shorts and an oversized tank top opened the show. Young Hollywood rehab chic comes to mind, his collection is edgy, yet understated and clinical. Hues of grey, black and white embraced unstructured tulip dresses, the occasional cinched waist and fitted jacket added a touch of elegance to a hobo-chic collection.
