Line is definitely my favourite show so far this season. I straight-up loved it. I gushed. I squealed. I loooooved it. On to the clothes: John Muscat and Jennifer Wells' show great talent in their cuts and fabric choices, whether it's the perfectly clinging shredded poly-disco minidress in a rich salmon or a insouciant pair of wide-legged micro-dot-mesh leather or suede gauchos. The pieces were like ones I'd never really seen before - such originality inspires a shiver of delight, really.

I tend to shy away from such a pale, ladylike palette, but here it felt fresh, sexy, and terribly chic, rather than dowdy, boring, or overly hipster.

There was a real womanliness to the knotted chiffon and silk flamenco-style dresses (ditto on the refreshingly less-skinny models with the rollercoastering curves filling out the synthetic fabric in an eye-popping way), along with the super-cute knit crop-tops and swingy little vests in dark coral weave or thin gray wool.

Also notable were the boatnecked pink lacey onesie, the linen harem pants, and the gorgeous silk jumpsuits in a watercolour pattern of celadon and slate.

Will any of the designers on-deck this year be able to top Line's lovely work here? We'll see. Take a look at the collection in the video above. See some backstage photos below:
