The Burberry Prorsum fall show is one that I look forward to all year. It almost never disappoints. This one was especially impressive. The feminine bow tie belts were adorable, I loved the graphic t-shirts and the structured jackets were beautiful. The finale with a fantastic touch. The umbrellas were awesome and fit the collection’s aesthetic. Christopher Bailey knows best. Prorsum’s spring collection, available on Netaporter, is also pretty awesome. The raffia parka, pleated jersey maxi dress and double faced leather trench are to die for. But I will say, fall is Prorsum’s season.
I’m a total sucker for stationary and notebooks, and Smythson is where it’s at. Always classic. Always elegant. I want one. I love Barney’s selection of cute note jotters. Who wouldn’t want a leather embossed notebook in one of the above styles? Really hoping Santa is extra nice these year and hooks me up with a 2012 Smythson calendar. That’d be nice.
Poodles and pastels on the Mulberry catwalk. What an adorable show. Frilly and girly frocks are dominating the runways this season. Mulberry continues to build a strong reputation and a celebutante following. Kristen Stewart and Kate Moss sat front row for Creative Director Emma Hill’s show. Topshop Unique’s show was equally impressive. It is refreshing to see a consistent cohesive vision from this branch of Topshop. The collection was a combination of sophistication and street. Keep it coming London!
The ladies of Sass & Bide never fail me. In the words of Style.com, there was a new streamlined sensibility in this Spring/Summer 2012 collection. I loved the mixture of lights and darks, along with prints and solids. Definitely a more minimal collection than we are used to from Ms. Sarah-Jane Clarke and Ms. Heidi Middleton. London Fashion Week has officially started with a bang.
