Despite receiving a good shake down by Storm Dennis, the queue of fans outside Rixo’s presentation was snaking around the block. Of course, they could have saved themselves the dry-cleaning bill. Sure, there were iced cakes and glasses of rosé in abundance, but at 3.30pm today, as soon as the presentation started, the see-now-buy-now collection dropped on Rixo’s website and at its King’s Road pop-up.

It was a particularly special moment for founders Orlagh McCloskey and and Henrietta Rix. For their limited-edition collection, the designers collaborated with Christian Lacroix, delving into the couture house’s archives in Paris and reimagining its iconic prints for today’s Rixo woman. The result was a typically joyful collection of puffed-sleeved dresses (spliced with three loud and proud patterns), cropped boxy blazers (with colour pop buttons), dogtooth skirt suits (rendered in retro lime green) and deliciously ombréd separates that looked like a Tequila Sunrise cocktail.

The duo paid homage to the French maison, exhibiting several Lacroix looks that inspired today’s collection right in the centre of the thrumming presentation space so guests could get up close and personal with fashion history. One piece, a navy blue and white polka-dotted puff-sleeved frock, or look 30 from Lacroix’s autumn/winter 1991 collection, came with the following explainer: ‘Christian Lacroix gained critical acclaim for his ‘Le Pouf’, the voluminous, exaggerated puffball skirt, which came to define the look of the late 1980s. His continued experimentation with shape and volume can be seen in this asymmetrical ‘bubbled’ dress with puffed sleeve.’

The combination of its inclusive spirit, sweet-spot price point and cool collaborations, their last presentation featured a ‘field’ made of recycled fabric by Wow Grass, has helped give the brand a cult following. So, what are you waiting for?
