GEORGIE’S REVIEW: KING & TUCKFIELD WOMENSWEAR PRE-SS21
Mon 13 Jul
We’ve all been forced to find joy or relief in isolation. Most of us have been craving outdoor space and fresh air and Stacey Wood, founder of King & Tuckfield was no different. Birthed from a newly found appreciation of London’s parks, the latest collection from Wood is a celebration of bright, joyous flowers and the escapism these green spaces bring.
Soft pink oversized shirt and trouser are breezy and relaxed, perfect for staying home or going out. Flowing silks in halter neck dress, skirt and shirt are ideal for catching that light British breeze while delicate floral prints are an explicit reference to Wood’s new found fascination. Similarly, the striking hot pink bulb dress, the baby pink asymmetric dress and the square-necked yellow A-line dress appear to mimic the flowers themselves. Warm tones of camel and navy ground the collection, appearing in tailored two pieces or long straight shirt dresses, and keep a note of structure amongst the willowy fabrics.
Sharp, oversized collars and wave knitted sleeveless jumpers hark of Wood’s regular inspiration, her Grandmother ‘Joan Marion King’ – an East London 1940s ballet dancer, with light war-time references interspersed throughout. Light, bright and buoyant, this collection is a moment of reflection and relief delightfully captured through charming garments.
