It’s been a popular stylist’s theme in the heavy hitting fashion magazines for some time, as well as featuring on Dolce and Gabanna‘s catwalk for AW’11, but I have to say, aside from the brothel creeper, crepe sole shoes that we were reporting on last Summer, this London Fashion Week was the first time we have seen the boyish look adopted so fully in ‘real life’.
Slightly cropped tailored pants, crisp shirts, boyish sweaters, loafers or Chelsea boots, school boy jackets and the occasional satchel create a youthful and engagingly naive feel. Add a kitten heeled winkle picker and suddenly it feels 60’s Mod scooter girl. There was a more grown up edge to this too, as seen on Anna Dello Russo who seemed to be channeling a bit of Bianca Jagger/ Gucci in the hands of Tom Ford.
