An ongoing love affaire with all things fashionable, tasty and fun

London Fashion Week Spring 2012 Round-Up

London Fashion Week was a bright affaire and despite the somewhat gloomy weather the designers did their best to give us brilliant shows. The looks had lots of traditional Spring flares but also had lots of structure, something that I love about British designers.

Burberry was a fun, funky twist on the classics. I loved the lengths, colors, patterns and accessories, especially the beaded chunky sandals.

Mary Katrantzou's collection was a bright extravaganza, the end result nothing short of art.

Christopher Kane's collection was light and airy, with interesting fabrics and unique silhouettes marching down the runway in chunky floral sandals.

The Peter Pilotto show was another one filled with bright splashes of color and innovative prints. This tech inspired snake-skin dress was to die for, a sophisticated and chic way to wear both color & prints.

The separates at Matthew Williamson really caught my eye this season, there were lots of great shorts, mini & maxi length skirts and gorgeous blouses.

The Erdem show was sweet and floral, I adored the matching blue floral gloves with this dress.

Overall there was lots of color, lots of prints – which ran the gamut from pretty, traditional spring florals to wild ethnic prints in unabashedly bold colors – and lots of cool separates. Stay tuned for more from London and the Milan and Paris shows.
