With the global traveller as inspiration, organic label Wildlife Works presented a casual and relaxed collection for spring/summer 2009, with a showcase of separates providing a highly commercial look.
Ruffles of soft silk were seen on sheer floaty tops and tiered dresses, safari shorts held their own alongside casual cargo-inspired jumpsuits, and linen dresses were a focus arriving in maxi-length loose-fit shapes, or thigh-skimming A-line styles.
Colours were muted in fawn, antique white, gold chartreuse and pale shades of blue and green offset by black. But it was the subtle prints that were a particular highlight, taking inspiration from tribal patterns on some styles, while incorporating an oversized embroidered paisley on others.
