Spotty, stripy and chequered: James Pilcher’s MA collection brimmed with bold black and white designs.
Presented at the Royal College of Art fashion show earlier in the week, Pilcher’s work combined different sizes of simple motifs to create a varied but cohesive range.
The collection featured a wide-necked striped jumper, loosely knit to be translucent. Chequerboard trousers and a vinyl jacket with two white bands made up another outfit.
A knee-length coat utilised a patchwork of horizontal, vertical and diagonal stripes. Made in a similar style, a bomber jacket was worn with flecked black shorts over spotty leggings.
One pair of skinny black trousers had three white straps buckled around each leg below the knee. Other skin-tight trousers had patterns of various scales and one stripy pair looked decidedly Beetlejuice.
Even black platform shoes had white lines circling their soles.
Also at this year’s RCA fashion show, Han Chul Lee presented patterned leather items worn with fedoras.
