Josh Goot Lookbook S/S 2012
Orchids and amazingness abound, starring Ollie Henderson.
Baroque borders in gold and bright floral prints might typically be associated with 90s Versace or Yetta from The Nanny, but trust us, Josh Goot's harnessed the look in a very good way for his S/S 2012 collection.
The grand master of strong silhouettes has once again delivered a collection that's typically modern and clean, allowing him to go awol in the digital prints department. To say they are "floral" seems like a bit of an understatement when describing the roses, orchids and lilies that decorate key pieces. The "hallucination of a wealthy bee" might be a better description for the graphics (designed by Oyster's own Stacia Hadiutomo and Shane Sakkeus) that have splashed themselves onto Goot’s masculine lines.
The structural, semi-sports luxe collection still retains the label’s signature strength of colour blocking, with summer-ready neon blue and orange hues, mixed with more subtle tones of maroon, lemon, and pale pink. This season also sees Goot embrace the lady-like high collar, peplum shape and high-waisted skirt, along with some classic body con dresses and a couple of rad oversized bomber jackets.
Whether psychedelic yet futurist prints are your weakness, or if asymmetrical statement-shapes are more your thing, prepare to drool either way. This collection will hold its own, here and abroad.
