Is the slash the new cut-out?
While cut-out garments tend towards the body-conscious or structured, the slash is a bit more freeform. Designers are slashing everything from sleeves to skirts and even trouser legs for a fluid effect or simply to show an unexpected slice of skin. Silks and fabrics that drape well are particularly suited. You’ll find skirts at Dion Lee (dionlee.com), T-shirts at Amiri (mytheresa.com) and ribbed tops at Christopher Esber (christopheresber.com.au), while Ellery’s flares are cut up the middle (net-a-porter.com). Ginger & Smart offers a double whammy with this jumpsuit – slashed sleeve and trouser legs (pictured, $629, gingerandsmart.com).
