For Fall, London designer Thomas Tait studied up on his color theory. Recently shortlisted for the inaugural LVMH Young Fashion Designer prize, Tait put forth a collection composed of brash jigsaw-ed color-blocking, manipulating mustard-y ochre, tomato red, bright cyan, burnt sienna, and dandelion yellow into asymmetric bustiers, sculptural seamed wool coats with exaggerated lapels, round-shouldered blazers, blousy dresses in rainbow stripes, iridescent Lurex-threaded one-shouldered gowns, and separates with lush Op-Art printed pleating. High-impact make-up (and footwear) enhanced Tait’s journey into rich, saturated, unadulterated color.
