For his Spring 2014 collection, Martin Grant was inspired by the ballet and swimwear from the ’30s, thus he merged the two in polished looks that celebrated and accentuated the female form.
Skin was exposed with leg-baring playsuits, barely-there shorts, and the open backs of blouses, surely crafted to captivate and turn the heads of those who come into contact with their wearers.
The retro-inspired influence of the collection shined through with voluminous skirts and jackets, cinched waists, calf-length skinny trousers, drop-waist frocks, and peplum.
Modernity came by way of more streamlined designs, in either black, nude, or red: the latter serving as the collection’s only non-neutral hue. All of the looks were paired with black pointed-toe pumps, speaking to their pared-down and classic nature.
Last season, I stated that I wanted Zoe Saldana to wear some of the brand’s designs and I can still very much see her in its latest collection, as well as Kerry Washington and Gwyneth Paltrow. The princess-esque dresses with splashes of print are a shoo-in for a Best Dressed list should some stylish star opt for them.
