It’s obvious how Mondrian + Picasso in the early 20th century were reference points for Sarah Burton when creating her spring collection.  Full of rectangular shapes + lines in reds, blacks + white, pointing to Mondrian, there were feathers + leather + metal harnesses across the chest citing Picasso’s African influence, full of carefree inhibitions + strength.  The 1920’s metal cloche hat, which was easily mistaken for a helmet, was a perfect finishing touch.
