New Designer: Silvina Maestro and 'Theorema' Review

The other day I came across a very new and exciting fashion designer - Silvina Maestro. As a self professed 'conceptual fashion artist', Silvina who is from London, is young and has a long and prosperous future in the fashion industry. After graduating from Central Saint Martins, she was offered a job by Givenchy and almost immediately started working opposite Riccardo Tisci. 

Her most recent collection 'Theorema' is a very unsteady and unpredictable collection in my opinion; in a good way, of course. With this collection, you don't know where quite where you are standing, and each piece is very different. All too often, you see a collection based around the same look, and although that works for some, it is very refreshing to see it from another point of view. With merging but versatile pieces, it is one very impressive collection. 

With mixtures of flowing chiffon and structured cotton, and the combinations of modern clean cuts and heritage-inspired bodices, this collection gives versatility and surprise more than anything. My favourite pieces from Theorema are the cloud print skirt, and the one-strapped floral top that to me comes across as Valentino inspired. I also love the long, loose dresses that looks like they could be worn by that of a Greek goddess. 

The collection is different from one piece to the next, but it tied together by the almost monochrome colour scheme, with the exceptions of electric blue and gold.
