A moment please to stop and admire the beautiful graduate collection of fashion designer Saskia Roberts, who designed a range entitled Potter, Painter, Poet inspired by ceramics, and the textures, colours, and patterns produced during the process. The result is a timeless palette of neutral creams, browns and terracottas interspersed with highlights of green and turquoise. She’s artfully employed crumpled starchy cotton to build garments which maintain their form, standing away from the body in an apron-like fashion, decorated with prints which replicate the marbled texture of fabric imprinted with clay. Perhaps the most exciting element is the sparse employment of fingerprints to decorate hemlines, giving the looks a playful, tactile feel backed up with soft linens. As concepts go it could have fallen on its face, but this one works beautifully.
