Yellow and blue, the 2 dominant bright hues seen on the runway of Gary Bigeni, brought sunny disposition to luxe sophistication. Last year, Bigeni’s collection was a contrast between the warm array of terra-cotta and cool turquoise jersey pieces draped in perfect fluidity. I recall caressing the silk fibers with my fingers at his showroom and silently applauding the ingenuity of his designs- totally wearable, utterly covetable. This season, Bigeni allows his own colourful personality to shine through. He communicates his SS12/13 collection through bold prints, exploding colors but translates his beloved silks and leathers into modern, understated silhouettes with sartorial splendor. Who knew that the drape master can also tailor like a Saville Row and color like Van Gogh?

A favourite show from the 1st day of MBAFW, I hope you enjoyed the geometric prints and dazzling hues. I think I want the entire collection…
