Showcased against a pink-and-grey marbled bathroom backdrop, Hannah Weiland's fall/winter 16 collection transports us to a painterly world, full of ruby reds, contrasting lines, sheer florals, and gorgeous windowpane checks. 

"For fall/winter 16 I wanted Shrimps to be a little bit older, a little bit darker and a little bit wiser," says Weiland. "With more attitude, the Shrimps girl has grown up with me. I was inspired by the color palette of Milton Avery's beautiful paintings, the linear, contrasting lines of artist Agnes Martin, and a lot of research into the world's most beautiful and interesting bathrooms." 

With less focus on the signature Shrimps coat (although, there were plenty of sumptuous coats on offer) the brand has evolved into ready-to-wear. "These pieces are all at home in the Shrimps world, and are what I think the Shrimps girl wants to wear." From beautiful evening dresses with hints of faux fur to everyday culottes and jumpsuits, it's Hannah's most considered collection yet.
