London S/S Fashion Wk Part2
London Spring/Summer 2011 – Favourites 2
At Holly Fulton, 60’s inspired graphic prints made for an eye-catching Spring/Summer vision. Art Deco tribal motifs, laser-cut dresses and embellishment; created a feast for the eyes in bold black, sunshine yellow and sky blue. Fulton explored a jet-set theme which made for strikingly, unique yet wearable pieces. Aviator sunglasses, patterned clutch bags and dramatic statement necklaces added the perfect finishing touches.
Favourite Fulton piece – The high waisted, flared patterned trousers worn with a simple, classic white tee and statement necklace – is my favourite look from the collection. Classic, elegant yet unique! (pictured 2nd, line1 above).
70’s glamour took centre stage at Roksanda Ilincic. Pieces stood out in an impressive shade of pink and soft grey. Breezy light dresses and billowing silk head-wraps; seemed to float effortlessly around the body. Motivated to capture the essence of a beautiful summer afternoon – Ilincic’s colour palette and use of the softest most luxurious materials made the collection feel weightless and whimsical. High-waisted trousers and pencil skirts with blouses also carried this theme into wearable separates.
Most wanted Roksanda Ilincic look – Love the first look to appear on the catwalk – the fluorescent pink dress with ¾ sleeves and gorgeous grey head-wrap – the perfect summer look. (pictured 1st, line1 above)
Feather-light chiffon, antique lace, sheer fabrics and beautiful detailing; created romance and seduction at Julien Macdonald. Worn with Valley of the Dolls hair, the collection evoked an innocence yet undeniable allure. Faded floral patterns in orange, yellow, pink, blue, purple and grey billowed around the models in complete harmony. Cream was the main focal point; while trench coats, shorts and shirts were made in heavier striped, deckchair inspired, material. In the sheerest material, some pieces may be a little too revealing for real-life; however, separates when combined with other pieces will create the perfect balance for a sexy, chic summer.
Must have Macdonald magic –I love the cream baby doll dress with long white lace sleeves. So beautiful, pure and delicate.(pictured 4th in line1 above)
