London Day III – Spring 2012 RTW

19 Sep

Happy bright colors, lady like looks, and loads of rompers!   Day III of London Fashion Week is my favorite so far.

DARLING geometrical romper by Holly Fulton

This look can literally be worn from day-to-night. If styled with a leather motorcycle jacket and chunky accessories, it could be great for popping around town - BUT if paired with strappy metallic heels and sparkly bangles, it could be a nice alternative to the LBD for a gallery opening or drinks with friends.

Mario Schwab’s spring collection was sophisticated and ladylike.  The dresses shown below have structured, yet still very feminine lines that add, not detract to the natural beauty of a woman’s body.

LBD by Marios Schwab. I love the intentional VPL.

This deep V is the perfect amount of reveal - and the neckline is flattering to the shoulders.

I am obviously in love with this look by Mario Schwab. It is a bit trashy and elegant and the same time. (A look I often try to achieve!)

Nicole Farhi’s use of ice cream parlor colors makes me want a triple scoop cone of orange sherbet, raspberry sorbet, and lemon basil ice cream!

In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory…I present to you a dress by James Long shown at Fashion East.  Doesn’t it just make you think of candy?

The use of ballerina pink, sheer fabrics, and soft layering in Richard Nicoll’s Spring Collection reminds me of a fairy in her off time.  Think Tinkerbell off duty from Peter Pan.

Matthew Williamson’s details and embellishments were over-the-top.  These were my two favorite (and in my opinion – most wearable looks) from the collection.
