LFW Spring/Summer 2012 Runway review
LFW runway shows kept to more natural palettes and focused on wear-ability and modernism but still echoed NYFW’s edgy floral and femininity. Overall no real stand out, but my favourite shows were Burberry Prorsum and Paul Smith.
My top 10 NYFW S/S12 runway shows:
Signature hand-dyed ruffles, fusion of Victorian and African inspirations, unique, delicate and beautiful
Wearable, earthy tones, comfort
A very feminine collection from Jaeger London – Pastels, lovely and lady-like
Continuing with their FW11 animal theme, SS12 brought a touch of safari with zebra and leopard prints but with soften pastel candy colours
“It was inspired by the neon-festooned lights at Blackpool and I was looking at pictures of when I was growing up in the Seventies and holidays meant sitting on the beach with a cagoule on. It’s still very rooted in outerwear and she’s still very Mulberry and that English girl,” explained Mulberry’s creative director Emma Hill after the show.
Modern, shimmers, fresh
Floral laser cut prints, silky and soft and feminine
Simplicity, energetic, youthful
Extravagant,elegant, silky long and sheer nude dresses, goddess like
Comfort, relaxed, boys-for-girls look
African influence, mesmerising, lots of raffia and geometric prints.
I always look forward to the Burberry shows each season and am never disappointed. Read here for the rest of my review of the SS12 fashion show. In the mean time enjoy the full fashion show, courtesy of Burberry:
Updated: PS I am totally obsessed with U2’s cover of Everlasting Love and pretty much the rest of the soundtrack used for Burberry’s runway.
