Night at the Museum: Molly Goddard AW16


To present her third on-schedule collection since a much applauded autumn winter 2015 debut, Central Saint Martins Knitwear graduate invited guests to an opulent slumber party. But instead of a crowded bedroom, girls took over a cavernous, stucco’ed hall in the Tate Britain, donning chiffon, silk and tulle party dresses instead of sleepwear. Swinging, petticoat-like skirts were worn with ruched tights – one-off creations for the event, as street cast models danced, frolicked and even played a few notes on a white grand piano. The otherworldly setting, which also grouped prop greek columns on all white podium, took inspiration from vintage Japanese cinema, in particular 1966 cult classic ‘Tokyo Drifter’, which is set in the dangerous world of Yakuza, Japan’s organised crime scene.  Goddard’s couture worthy creations combined fragile fabrics such as organza with hard-wearing printed corduroy and other workwear staples, all in shades of pastels, burnt orange and opaque black. Goddard’s ballet recital-worthy dresses have long been best selling favourites, next autumn they are joined by smock style coats and delicate silk slips.
