For this collection Roksanda Ilincic used warm and colorful blanket-like fabrics. They are mixed together in unexpected ways creating a wonderfully vivid winter color palette which includes blue, turquoise, orange, fuchsia, red, orange, purple and brown. Clothes are impeccably tailored and color contrasts are very appealing. She used a lot of patchwork technique to stitch together pieces of fabric in different colors.
Coats and dresses have loose, asymmetric silhouettes that look very comfortable and yet elegant. Even some of the evening dresses are done in wooly fabrics, and they sometimes look like the body is wrapped in a very pretty blanket. The others are made from satin which is embellished with chunky beads.
The collection also features fabulous clutches made out of two-colored wool and flat shoes as well as heels with vintage herring-bone pattern, which she also used for dresses and coats.

The collection also includes goat fur jackets, straight-cut trousers and silk skirts and it is followed by bright-colored accessories such as pink python gloves and colorful jewelry.
