Josh Goot Lookbook S/S 2012

Orchids and amazingness abound, starring Ollie Henderson.
Josh Goot S/S 2012

Baroque ​borders in gold and bright floral prints might typically be associated with 90s Versace or Yetta from The Nanny, but trust us, Josh Goot's harnessed the look in a very good way for his S/S 2012 collection.

The grand master of strong silhouettes has once again delivered a collection that's typically modern and clean, allowing him to go awol in the digital prints department. To say they are "floral" seems like a bit of an understatement when describing the roses, orchids and lilies that decorate key pieces. The "hallucination of a wealthy bee" might be a better description for the graphics (designed by Oyster's own Stacia Hadiutomo and Shane Sakkeus) that have splashed themselves onto Goot’s masculine lines.

The structural, semi-sports luxe collection still retains the label’s signature strength of colour blocking, with summer-ready neon blue and orange hues, mixed with more subtle tones of maroon, lemon, and pale pink. This season also sees Goot embrace the lady-like high collar, peplum shape and high-waisted skirt, along with some classic body con dresses and a couple of rad oversized bomber jackets.

Whether psychedelic yet futurist prints are your weakness, or if asymmetrical statement-shapes are more your thing, prepare to drool either way. This collection will hold its own, here and abroad.
