The Camilla and Marc Fall 2014 Collection is a funny disconnect to discover that the designers took inspiration from Francis Bacon's 'Three Studies of Lucian Freud' as a starting point. The clothes have none of Bacon's bilious color and even less of the unsettled abstraction conveyed in the famous painting, but in the end, it's a modern take on a classic piece of mastery.

While its sharp linearity appealed to the designers they ended up with a more feminine balance thanks to floaty organza, a strong diamond jacquard and sift georgette, all in a palette of mostly black, red and white.

Their checkered lace was the winning material; the openwork grid was pretty and assertive in equal measure.
