Bally collaboration with Central St Martins

Now we LOVE finding new talent and are always on the look out for new designers be it in menswear, womenswear or accessories. We know how hard it is to break into to the fashion industry so we want to show case as many new designers as possible. 
Below is Bally’s collaboration with Central St Martins, beautiful, clean, simple lines and outstanding tailoring. What is there not to love!

Day 4 LFW

Day four at London Fashion Week

Antonio Beradia


The mini skirt comes back to life in Beradia’s A/W 2012 collection, throw in some bright teals, oranges and mix with metallic’s, black and white and you have an beautiful collection. 
Burberry Prosorum


Doesn’t need any introduction! “The Trench” is still on my wish list!
Chistopher Kane


Quite a grown up collection from Kane, Loving the print and mix of fabric and the over-sized silhouette.
Ederm


Ladylike and youthful with a sexy edge!
Fashion East


Amazing collections from some new designers! Great use of colour, fabric, print and silhouette. I look forward to seeing more from these great designers.
Giles

Beautiful with a masculine edge. Love the white ball gown (far right)with the shirt inspired collar! Beautiful!
McQ Alexander McQueen


Dark and sexy. Love the large ruffle skirts, must have for A/W 2012.
Osman


Dark and grown up collection, not for the faint of heart. The metallic suits are sure to be a winner.

Nasir Mazhar

Some beautiful accessory designs by Nasir Mazhar. With cool, original designs, that focus on attention to detail, we love the new collection for A/W 2012. 

Above are our favorite, beautifully feminine with pastel tones and shades of white finished off with bright embroidered detail, soooo nice!

This is so pretty! We love the neck piece, it’s on our wish list!

Day 3!

You know the roll…. Here are our favs from day 3! We have soooooo much choice to look forward to!
Acne A/W 2012

Bright neons mixed with pastel shades and leather! How could you not love it!?

Margret Howell A/W 12

Cute pleated skirts in muted tones, straight leg trousers and cropped knitted jumpers, were thinking wardrobe staples!

Louise Gray A/W 2012

Clashing prints bright colours and wacky over the top hair and earings… not for the wall flowers of us but take elements and mix with jeans, pleated skirts or leggings and you have a great diverse and fun wardrobe!

Mulberry A/W 2012

Ah the English sweethearts Mulberry. Were not surprised to see beautiful prints, silhouettes and fabrics waltzing down the runway. We are loving the movement in the fabrics and the bright Orange tones used to warm up, an otherwise, dark palette. Hands down one of the best collections yet in our eyes. The Dog’s on the catwalk might have clinched it;)
Nichole Farhi A/W 2012

An elegant collection. Loving the black dress with the black and yellow sequins!

Thomas Tait A/W 2012

Cool oversized coats to keep us warm in Winter in a very wearable and flattering shades, brightened up with Yellow Leather trousers! Nice twist, looking forward to seeing more from Mr Tait!

Nice

Half of the fun of reading fashion mags is looking at the beautiful adverts, here are a few of our favs.

Chanel Spring Summer 2012

Mulberry Spring Summer 2012

Art or Fashion?

Couture fashion is the most expensive fashion in the fashion industry. Its a small select group that use the finest materials and skills, but with its flamboyant style, extreme price tags is Couture fashion better placed in the art world? 

Givency 2012 Spring Summer

House of Worth 2012 Spring Summer

The designs are over the top but no-one can deny how beautiful and inspiring they are. Givenchy pushes the barriers of Haute Couture by designing body jewellery, that not only any rocker would be proud to wear, but is 100% stunning! We love the Givenchy collection especially. At the end of the day Couture fashion pieces are, in their own right, art, but they also have the place in fashion, firmly at the top. Its brings us joy just looking at beautiful pictures of it, imagine what we would be like if we could wear it!
