A swathe of reflective silver fabric hangs over the white runway and a tray table of tropical cocktails sits patiently to the side. Welcome to Point Blank SS17 - 'Dive In.'
If the name wasn't a big enough clue, the diving, palm tree and paradise motifs opening the show certainly give it away. Watery blue tie-dye prints mimic the ripples in the fabric above and models walk down in colours suitable for the hottest of climates.
Turquoise metallic palm leaves on pillar box red backgrounds glint in the light - almost blinding. If I could have torn my eyes away from the spectacle in front of me, I would have grabbed my sunglasses out of my bag.
There's a strong poolside, holiday vibe going on with swimwear peeking out from sweatshirts and bermuda shorts. The models move at a leisurely pace, as if wading through water with wet-look hair coiling around their eyes. Slow, soothing music sets the pace and together with the models' nonchalant expressions and futuristic design, transports you to another world where these eclectic ethereal creatures reside.
A sugary pink dress slashed with white lace comes out and the brand's eye for interesting cuts makes an appearance. With backgrounds in both fashion and architecture, this design duo are experts when it comes to silhouette and form. Their aesthetic plays with clashing textures and materials and often blends luxury elements with that of street wear.
To close the show there are two shimmering silver outfits juxtaposed with sporty, striped inserts. Something that doesn't sound like it should work but oddly does. This is what Point Blank are all about. Challenging the norm and creating something you've never seen before with artistic brilliance. No wonder this design duo were picked up by Fashion Scout.
I predict Point Blank to sit firmly on the fashion radar after such a brilliantly blinding show.
