British fashion brand RIXO has debuted its Spring ‘Bon Voyage’ collection at its London Fashion Week presentation.
The show, which took place at the Barbican Conservatory, took attendees on a journey to some of co-founders Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey’s favourite destinations.
The bold and colourful palette in their Bon Voyage collection is an encapsulation of all things holiday.
Vintage postcards, tourist souvenirs, holiday deckchairs and parasols inspired the signature hand-painted prints and embroideries – looking closely enough to find a surprise of tropical fruits and dancer motifs.
Fun, large-scale swirls and marbling prints run through the collection alongside joyful mixed print combinations.
The collection also celebrates RIXO’s first fully extended sizing range; from 6 to 20.
“The prints have a true spirit of holiday and happiness. I painted little dancing women with maracas, palm trees with coconuts and big Mexican Sombrero hats! I hope it brings lots of joy to women who wear the pieces next summer,” says McCloskey.
Rix says they want as many women as possible to feel the best versions of themselves in RIXO.
“We are so pleased to finally be able to launch a wider size range to make women feel special and truly confident in RIXO. Bring on next summer!” she says.
Guests were greeted with an immersive experience at the Barbican Conservatory which brought all typical ideas of ‘holiday’ to life.
RIXO models were dotted in and amongst the greenery with surprise rum shacks, live music performances and a pina colada bar to be enjoyed throughout.
New summer cottons and linens were showcased, represented in both solid and print pieces. Trims and detailing were a key focus, with crochet, colourful ric-rac and lace featuring heavily.
RIXO has introduced new embroidered collars, button-down halter-neck dresses and puff sleeves, as well as bringing back its classic shapes, reimagined in new prints.
