Trend S/S 2012

Many designers collections and peoples personal style showed a really fun use of prints, may it be an all over statement or a clash with other prints or textures. I think it shows that you don't have to be afraid to experiment with a range of colours and prints and it can look very chic (if done right) and not just like a jumble! I think honestly fashion should be fun and this should be shown through an open mind and not caring what other people think doesn't go together.

Trend S/S 2012

A major trend I have noticed is outfits that look very similar to pajamas may it be an over all print or just the trousers. It creates a laid back and smart but quirky style. The silk Great Gatspy style of The Row's look adds a very glamorous, luxurious feel whilst the other looks are creating a quite young, fun look.

Antipodium S/S 2012 London

I really liked this collection I think it had an unusual but very beautiful look to it, a gorgeous colour palette and lovely prints.
The clothes were very interesting, some deconstruction is seen in the cut outs and sheer inserts such as the very cropped trench coat. There is also evidence of quite androgynous masculine silhouettes and details such as the buttoned up shirts and boxy voluminous jackets.

Paul Smith S/S 2012 London

Paul Smith's womanswear collection definitely illustrated the masculine trend really well, showing a very effortless chic style.
I think the use of the check and the brush stroked flowers print lifted the collection and made it very feminine.
The only element to the collection I didn't like was the wide legged trousers that sat weirdly on the hips and didn't work as well as the slim slightly cropped trousers.
Overall i think the collection is very stylish and wearable and a really nice alternative to some of the very over sexy looks of other designers collection.

Street Style Trend, London Fashion Week

There was a very apparent maxi skirt trend, a lot of the looks were also teamed with extra long cardigans or jackets creating a very long slim draped silhouette.

Christopher Raeburn S/S 2012 London

Christopher Raeburn's presentation was set in the museum of London making it the first fashion show to be held there. It seems it was a very unique and innovative presentation creating a real atmosphere of lighting visuals and sound making a truly interactive experience for those present.
With a focus on colour composition and inspired by both sports and military wear, Raeburn has successfully deconstructed those traditional silhouettes and details and created some very interesting outerwear.
I think the inclusion of the casual-wear such as the printed joggers made the overall styling of the show really stylish and very wearable.
