Molly Goddard: Ready-to-Wear SS19

Molly Goddard is our kind of girl. All good vibes and inner confidence, she dresses to please herself. Just listen to how Goddard describes her SS19 muse as “slightly flush… Unsure whether it’s down to sunburn or the cervezas, but she doesn’t care it becomes her.” It certainly does. Frills, created by gathering tens of metres of cotton into architectural volumes were the name of the game here. It’s what Goddard is know for, but she injected plenty of newness. How about a pair of Molly Goddard culottes with an explosion of ruffles at the hem, or an unstructured tulle housecoat? There were fully sequinned options too including a teeny tiny skater dress which conjoined the bad girl attitude of Tonya Harding. Speaking of bad girls, Goddard introduced a vamp element, with slashed-to-the-waist frilled party dresses. There was plenty to please the Goddard super fans, who tuned up in their voluminous smocked finery but it was also great to see Goddard push her aesthetic with new shapes and structures. We raise a glass of cerveza to that.
