While Roksanda's collections are fulsomely feminine, they aren't necessarily known for their frothiness. But for Spring/Summer 2015, she embraced the frill, although she used it with a determined lack of frippery.

They came as integral, rigid structures on tops and winding down the side of dresses that were double-faced in silk and neoprene, orange, bright mint, cornflower blue and hot pink.

This season, Ilinčić also looked to a more gamine aspect, something more street than her usual mid-century silhouette, in neoprene shell tops, crested on the pocket with her initials. These also came in a sort of scribble print camouflage,  with matching shorts that gave edge to an otherwise elegant collection.

The Roksanda woman isn't standoffish in her elegance though - that's why colours are always bright and there was an extra spattering of details, including giant polka dots, enamel embellishment and beading, and sheer panelling the colour of crayons brights.

As a designer enjoying her first year of investment and all the benefits that brings, it feels like Ilincic is looking to expand her repertoire - you can't help but feel excited.
