Geoffrey Henning’s capsule collection is permeated with unique 60s influences – bold colors, dizzying prints, and simple silhouettes. It was a love letter to the decade that changed the world, and a celebration of the female form. Geoffrey Henning’s woman is both soft and strong, and the clothing was just the perfect compliment to her magical aura.
Imagine, fluid silhouettes that melt on the body on a tantalizing color palate that range from black to white with pops of green, blue, fuchsia, and yellow. The bold colors and pragmatic shapes ultimately transport the wearer into an era of freedom and subtle sensuality.
Once upon a time, Diana Vreeland famously said, “You got to have style. It helps you get down the stairs. It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life. Without it, you’re nobody. I’m not talking about lots of clothes.” And I think this quote totally applies
to Henning’s design aesthetic – you see his collection is the embodiment of great style and pure female glamour, which I’m sure Empress Vreeland would have approved of.
Among the highlights from the collection stood a black chiffon sleeveless shift dress accentuated by a sheer plunging neckline, and the wrap-around dresses done in graphic prints or colored in acid hues. The daring ensembles were so exquisitely designed they seem to float on the body.
Geoffrey Henning’s rousing collection is a testimony that true beauty comes from within and that women should always wear the clothes…the clothes should never wear the woman. After all, fashion is all about celebrating ones individuality and personal style. Bravo!
