For Bianca Spender, The Party Is Always At The Back
Now, watch me walk away.| May 23, 2016
Bianca Spender knows the value of a good back. If people are going to watch you walk away, might as well give them something look at, am I right or am I right? For Resort 2017, the doe-eyed designer presented a number of rather pretty pieces that are almost guaranteed to be added to carts once they’re available. Well, for us at least. There were structured cropped tops, next-to-nothing slip dresses (that, as Derek Zoolander would say, are so hot right now), bomber jackets, silky matchy-matchy suits and pants with plenty of volume. A ruffle here and a ruffle there for added drama. Her looks are pared down and easy, but they’ve still got that pop of something-something, especially when you look at them from the back. A lightweight grey throw-over, for example, was minimal from the front, but turn it around and it’s a whole different story – a line of ruffles across the shoulders and down the arms, and a little clip that completely transformed its shape from an “okay” to a “YAAAAS”. Then, there’s that mustard velvet slip dress with the dangerously low back. Damn.
