Sibling’s love for shocking the audience is well known, and their SS16 collection didn’t disappoint. Starting off tame with tailored suits, wool jumpers printed in swirls and cropped trousers soon moved into their “All American Jock” theme with a true Sibling touch.
As the first few pieces came out you could have been tricked into thinking Sibling had turned over a new leaf, but then the prints became more striking and the styles more outrageous, which couldn't stop more than a few people from giggling. Soon appeared the jock straps first under tight sheer leggings which moved into pieces of their own, a hint of bum with low cut trousers, strappy corsets and boxer shorts.
Male models were accompanied by a few pieces of womenswear to complement the jock influenced collection, oversized pom poms carried by both down the runway, bringing cheerleading into the mix. Dressed in the same vibrant prints, wearing knitted dresses and American football inspired trousers. Sequin football shirts and raffia trim parka jackets were also statement pieces in this collection.
This collection takes their American college football concept and keeps the cheeky yet classic knitwear Sibling are known and loved for.
