We were somewhat smitten with Twenty-Seven Names’ Spring/Summer 2009/2010 collection so we were looking forward to seeing what the brand would present at this year’s New Zealand Fashion Week. It began with a rather Melbourne-esque colour palette of black, black, a bit of white and then some more black; before a splash of subdued nature-inspired colours started to shine through. A cream crocheted bodysuit was a great way to bring a Summer staple into Winter. More military jackets in army greens; a peachy short-suit that had a definite element of the Female Dandy.
Crushed velvet even made an appearance in several woodland nymph-ish pieces. With layering that worked in an thrown-together kind of way, Twenty-Seven Names’ show is sure to alert much of the world to New Zealand’s own brand of effortless cool.
