This season marked the third year designer Johnny Schembri showcased his collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. From the intricate set, featuring giant 3D cubes suspended from the ceiling to the bold contouring and graphic prints of the collection, it was clear to the editors and bloggers in the front row that by johnny is the label to watch.
After launching by johnny in 2009, Johnny Schembri became a finalist on the third season of Foxtel’s Project Runway and has since won numerous accolades including the Peroni Harper’s Bazaar Young Designer Award in 2010. With each new collection, Schembri further develops and challenges traditional ideas of shape and silhouette, enlisting more & more fans who are all drawn to Schembri’s now trademark graphic prints and simplistic new take on luxury.
This season’s collection is an exploration of all the colours of the rainbow and is aptly named Spectrum. Muted sorbets of lavender & calamine pink merge with bold primary colours of tangerine, sky blue and grass green, playing with the way light and shade work through the colour spectrum. Manipulated silk & jersey fabrications add fluidity and a softness to the more structured shapes, while bonded lace, brocade, crêpes and sequins bring a 3D element to bodycon dresses, pencil skirts and tailored blazers. Always focused on enhancing the visual female form, Schembri has enlisted a variety of fabric mash-ups to present his current take on depth and balance, resulting in a beautifully vibrant and fresh collection that we’re already lusting over for summer.
