Taiwanese designer Jamie Wei Huang sent sedate models down the catwalk to a classical soundtrack, the sombre mood befitting clothing inspired by images of refugees. The A/W 2014 Ballade collection featured Huang‘s trademark androgynous silhouette, with subtle functionality of dress reflected in small details such as multiple layers, zips, flaps and buckles.

The utilitarian nature of wartime fashion was recalled in relaxed tool belt styling, with the use of fabrics such as tweed, wool and leather serving to soften the predominantly square silhouette of boxy cut tops with slit backs, A-line skirts and wide legged trousers.

Flat leather clutch bags were clenched tightly to the waist, with cobalt blue, dusty pink and blood red providing coloured highlights to an otherwise neutral toned collection. Cosy hats with ear flaps would not have gone amiss in tough times but the chunky white heeled platform shoes were thoroughly modern. Jamie Wei Huang‘s collection was full of clever little touches, taking highly wearable garments beyond the ordinary.
