Opening a show to Joy Division’s “She’s Lost Control” might suggest disheveled, hot messiness. Perhaps Preen’s Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi were being ironic this go around as the clothes were both sharp and sexy, maybe even their best to date. The duo coupled mannish tailoring—a collaboration with Savile Row tailors Gieves & Hawkes—with sensual florals, marrying bustiers and boudoir intimates with oversized jackets and full trousers. Silk dresses featured turtleneck knits cropped to expose bras straps, while bolts of bright yellow and purple added sexy pops of color to a predominantly monotone palette. The pièce de résistance? A cocoon-like black fur coat, ideally worn with nothing underneath.
