Christopher Kane SS12

Futuristic, minimal silhouettes with sharp, elegant folds. Dresses encrusted with floral silver embellishment (Think the embellishment on that Mary Katrantzou dress that Anna Della Russo wore), rubber rain macs with plastic pop flower applique. Sporty rubber, flat sandals and pale denim.
Frow of the week so far with Sam Cam, Anna Wintour and a gold grilled Kayne taking it all in.

What do you think of the collection? My gut is it will divide opinion.

The romance of Antonio Berardi's collections always make me fall in love.

New York Fashion Week

The New York catwalks were as ever infinitely wearable and commercial (with some bonkers twists from the likes of Jeremy Scott.) The jacket is emerging as an important theme for the spring 12 season, from tailored blazers, to chic, tux jackets and cropped, voluminous or boxy jackets, they were all over the catwalks. Orange, yellow and bold Eve Klein Blue are the shades of the season as it stands. 
Botanical and Out of Africa safari prints are key while menswear inflections punctuated shirting. 
Hard-to-wear geometric prints were also a common theme and details wise, it's all about the peplum waist and the collar.
