With prints ranging from anatomical animal skeletons to Japanese style traditional waves and kaleidoscope blue this was a great collection from Ricardo Dourado. In the past his collections have pushed boundaries and tried exciting new shapes and fabrics. This collection however seemed to tone down the wild experiments a little and instead worked with shape and print. 
The colours varied from a bleached white to a baby pink, back through neon yellow as well as metallic elements. 
Curved cut outs featured and tabard layers were cut with curved edges. Oriental themes again seemed to take some form in the collection. 
Maintaining the street cool, for which the designer has become known, sleeves were layered or featured cut outs, zips were exposed, short legs tapered and the silhouette wide and baggy with structure through the shoulders. 

Ricardo Dourado provided another fresh collection and is still a firm favourite of mine!!
