Description
The Fall 2019 collection of Preen by Thornton Bregazzi was so all over the place, we didn't know where to start. Was it grunge? Victorian-inspired? Romantic? Edgy? We weren't sure anymore! But one thing's for certain, this was a flop in our books! We hope they'll do better next season!

In a whole host of ways that all seemed confusing and uncertain, dancing was the starting point for Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi this season. From the days of their youth dancing in underground raves in the late 80s and early 90s to the classic dances during the Victorian era, the design duo tried to encapsulate too many references in their Fall 2019 show for their Preen line. And ultimately, it resulted in a rather weak outing that had too many messages, not one of them clear. From the clog footwear to the blue tights with fishnet stockings, let’s just say the bottom half of the collection would be better left unseen. But the clothes, on the other hand, could have been stellar had there been lots of editing and more precision. Most looks were confusing, with unnecessary harnesses decorating minimalist suits and plaid-on-plaid ensembles that attempted to capture the grunge spirit of the past. All in all, the show was a weird spectacle that left us feeling more baffled than anything else. Despite the strong floral showing, we think Thornton and Bregazzi could have done a whole lot better!
