London Fashion Week SS12 Highlights

Burberry Prorsum- A real change in the label. Usually everone thought about Burberry as sport brand, but after this and last season, it got the status of chic! The neon dresses, bags, shoes and jackets are really hot this summer and those peplums still are at the top!Vivienne Westwood Red Label- as always unique and crazy, Vivienne didn’t disapoint for this summer. Florals, elegant but super ordinary dress are the must haves from this collection.Mary Katrantzou collection was inspired with Greece postcards, wildlife and a big pallette of blue colour. However not so spectacular as last season, it is still amazing and gives as the 3D Print Effect.Peter Pilotto’s classical look didn’t really change, however we can see some beautiful floral prints, orange colour and the new shade of blue. The collection was in reality like a collage! Different things with other things. I love it!My favourite of all- Christopher Kane

“Backstage at Christopher Kane and the atmosphere is electric, which is coincidental as moments before the show begins the designer tells a nearby camera crew that his inspiration for comes from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Previous collections have had off kilter beginnings, (the pencil cases and crochet throws from Kane’s youth and even Princess Margaret) but with Christopher Kane the origins of a collection never seem to matter – the end result is always spectacular.”

“The show begins and models in a procession of white, grey and pink dresses and skirt suits hit the runway with acrylic bolts at the seams. We like. Next are the pastel-toned wire cocktail dresses. We love. Now a printed tee featuring Boris Karloff as Frankenstein’s monster. We want. Then… a wire-emblazoned leather biker jacket, worn alongside a sheer-gauze skirt with a rubber-filigree overlay and Igor… we’re alive!”
