SUSANNA LAU: Nile knit action

A 1970's take on a 1920's exploration of a murder mystery in Egypt sends knitwear label, Cooperative Designs into a themed presentation at the Groucho Club that had a diverse set of models slinking around with martinis, perspex glasses as props and ACTUALLY having fun and smiling. The knitwear, whilst still being within the graphic Bauhaus-era that Annalisa Dunn and Dorothee Hagemann have mined over the past few seasons is uplified with colours and results in a fresh take on what I thought was a pretty 'done' decade.
