Judging by the  meticulously designed, couture-like looks that came down the runway for the brand’s autumn/winter 2014 collection, you wouldn’t be out of your element to think that this was the creation of a seasoned veteran. Featuring a very on-point palette of  blues, pinks, and the current season favourite, cream, the collection is charming without being cavity-inducing. Font achieves this balance by playing with shapes throughout. Architectural coats and a-line dresses with billowy skirts. Slouchy cropped pants with boxy tops.
