Ever the thinker, Miguel Adrover enjoyed a return to the
runway with a collection steeped in symbolism. With inspiration drawn from
events in the Middle East, he had set his sights high ‚Äď to ‚Äúset forth a new
vocabulary‚ÄĚ in fashion.
Indeed, this was no ordinary show. On a basic level, the garments each wove their own individual tale: deconstructed and then resurrected in a new and intriguing form, be it dresses fashioned from suit jackets or sock-puppet embellishments. Adrover‚Äôs textile mastery is clearly alive and well. Going deeper, he referenced cultures from across the globe; burka dresses one moment, swiftly followed up with US street-style trousers. The snow-globe of Cuban peso notes created a powerful commentary on the commercialisation of fashion, and although the reception to this particular show component was mixed, Adrover certainly got his voice heard.
