Spring is getting closer and it’s bringing lace, prints and pastels colours within. London Fashion Weekend catwalk presented the SS12 collections of Holly Fulton, Antipodium and Jasper Conran, and created two trends: Prim Rose and Game On.
Prim Rose introduced a collection of romantic pieces, hazy pastels and bright colour blocking in a white and clean summer. It kept silhouettes traditional and prim, adding a collar to the looks in a full experiment of palettes and hues.
Game On, inspired in the sporty mood of the upcoming London Olympics, brings sport luxe to the runway. The trend combined techno fabrics with silks, sportwear, retro swetears, mixing cashmere and silk jerseys, for an Eighties touch, which clashes with the modern prints.
Holly Fulton presented a light, tropical and sensual collection for a poolside elegance. With lots of silk, prints and vibrant colours, the collection includes fringes, tote bags, crochet-square skirts and dresses, and weightlessly pants. (Amazing white jacket -check out the photos!)
On the other hand, Antipodium introduced a flavour of the vintage that is now so in with retro-inspired shapes, sixties mini-skirt, boyish brogues, full-volume skirts, pastels, chiffon and thin belts, stablishing a comfortable family line.
Jasper Conran gave an innocent spirit to a collection of geometric figures, sharp cuts, and surprising backs, as designs seemed to be too squared, until models turned and revealed a sexy open back on relaxed dresses that give a sense of freshness.
To be honest, there was nothing I could say I really felt in love with more than Fulton’s white jacket. Liked some of her pieces (zebra & fringed dresses), Conran’s open backs and Game On’s shoes. What do you think? It is time to get inspired for Spring looks!
