Inspired by the extravagant, self-indulgent manner of the early ’80s Blitz Kids movement, Rachel Mill’s AW18 collection NEO KIND is bold and beautiful.
Loosely structured silhouettes in tangerine, black and white deliver a look that is both practical and powerful. Pieces with exaggerated frills in elegant silk offer a feminine look, while tailored jackets and trousers in various shades of pinstripe allow for a more masculine option. Turtlenecks, flared jumpsuits and wide-legged trousers allude to the free-spirited, fashionable era Mills modelled the collection on.
The local designer showcased the collection at New Zealand Fashion Week today, transforming the space into an open exhibition with models scattered throughout the room. Lounging on various stools and platforms, the models highlighted NEO KIND’s versatile and daring nature. Synthetic music and dramatic coloured makeup by Lisa Matson at L’Oreal Paris completed the flamboyant, glitzy atmosphere.
