According to the official show notes, Dutch designer Ilja Visser of Ready to Fish by Ilja conceived of her collection as "Un-related to any specific theme or inspiration, we started with a blank canvas to present a collection that reads like a sketchbook, and a compendium of the Ready to Fish style. It was important for us to capture the sketch-like quality of the unfinished, leaving room for both our own as the customers imagination and interpretation."  But that doesn't mean the collection was rough, or unfinished looking, in fact it was ultra polished, with a paired down glamour that was sophisticated in its simplicity.
