Fashion label EnD is yet another female design duo; Eva van Overbeeke and Delia Drel haven’t either reached the 30-year milestone but are already presenting their sixth collection.
Last season I referenced their designs to a beautifully repackaged version of my relatives in the 80’s, big hair and shoulder pads included. This season, the shoulder pads and slightly crazy hair prevailed but became part of a completely new vibe: which I can only explain as ‘the woods’.
Forest-derived tones of green, sky blue and orange were sewn into patchwork cover-ups, body-con dresses and (my favourite) wood-print leggings. The brand’s trademark ‘fan-like’ ruche-ing and exceptional prints were evident in nearly all of the designs. The print this time round resembled less of the psychedelic 70’s and more of something comparable to a vine-covered fence.
Is it the summer of love in a natural setting? I don’t know, but I like it!
