Moving on to the wonder that is Marc Jacobs. The Resort ’13 collection was apparently inspired by Cindy Sherman‘s ‘Clown’ series, and you can really see that in the colour level, proportions and styling, as well as in the way this has been shot. Feeling quite graphically ‘dressing up box’ or costume-like, the bold proportions and energetic textile, pattern and gaudy colour combinations create a really optimistic feeling. I’m sure the execution is so beautiful in real life that any hint of the comic or even dare we say, ugly, would be overwhelmed.

At LFW we were fortunate enough to be invited to see this amazing movie which has been created by director, Johnny Green, to showcase the wonderful SS’12 collection for Damaris. Featuring the absolutely stunning Liberty Ross, this movie has some truly explosive moments. Not only is the lingerie utterly enticing, this video is a visual treat. Up until now, this video was exclusive to Vogue, so we are delighted to be the next in line to share it with you.
Damaris have created a really stunning new season collection that features updated variations of their signature peek-a-boo knickers, as well as introducing some amazingly sculptural shapes. The innovative eye popping brights are tempered by sophisticated, classic black options. Combinations of lace, satin, dense and sheer with linear and layering detailing all adds up to a really exciting take on how modern lingerie should look.
Thanks to Sarah-Jane Nolan, for sending us the video and for posing for this picture, wearing the wonderful lace ‘ears’ created for the Damaris team to wear at London Fashion Week by milliner, Jess Collett.

So, to start the week, we have a colour injection to wake you up after the weekend. We’re almost through our mega post-a-thon of London Fashion Week coverage. Hope you’ve enjoyed all of the posts. We’ve had a fine time pulling them all together and deciding how best to categories all of the images.
After Friday’s post on the predicable, but still stunning selection of monochrome spotted on the global fashion crowd, we now look at the polar opposite direction. I think this was probably the most colourful LFW we have ever seen, including all for the fabulously eye popping prints we’ve posted too. We really love the ultra bright shifts and sweaters showing how to work the new season colour blocking, those brilliantly bright accessories that just added so much to an outfit, the odd colour clash and the complete exuberance that this added to our LFW experience.

So, here’s the second post from Distortion, featuring some of the best colourful and patterned looks that we spotted. There’s an inspiringly broad stretch of styles, as you’d see at any festival, but obviously with a Danish twist from this Copenhagen based event. Jumpsuits and playsuits look great, but our favourite shot of all is the stunning lady in red…
We had a little extra sunshine added to our lives this month as we were out retailing for the new round of reports. The ‘Colour’ message is being delivered loud and clear from all levels of the market and it really brightened up our day! We just had to share some of the best bits of this fashion rainbow with you, and add a little extra zing into this grey day for you too.
Enjoy, and just click here for more retail insights!
So, we’re straight in there with some pictures from the first few days of London Fashion Week. We’ve decided to have a look at one of the biggest stories of this Spring, and one that looks to have a long term impact on the way we’ll be wearing colour. From the Spring ’11 catwalks (check Jil Sander as the perfect example) colour blocking strong brights is a key direction. Translate this to the reality of a Spring day, and you have the ‘Colour Pop!’. Its the way to give this trend a nod and a wink without blinding those around you. Balance brights with softer shades- but we have to say that those who have chosen not to go the easy black backdrop route look the most interesting. Another really workable option is to rock some boldly coloured accessories.
Is bright the new black? Only kidding! Bright is just a great way to switch it up, grab a ray of sunshine and make a step change into Spring joy.
