This London Fashion Week was awash with gorgeous print and pattern. Some were identifiable as, or inspired by hot print looks from the Autumn ’11 catwalks, but the ones that we loved the most were the looks that reflected the wearer’s aesthetic rather than the designers. We think that a few of these are certainly vintage, and we really like that they all feel chosen purely for their beauty rather than the beauty of the back neck label.
Its hard to summarize any specific direction as the looks were wonderfully individual on the whole. ‘Colouful’ covers some of them, with a very broad brush stroke statement, but possibly a better thing to focus on is how they are being worn. We are really into those that styled up a couple of print and pattern looks together. This approach created some really gorgeously energetic and exciting effects. So, if in doubt about how to rock pattern this Autumn Winter, we say, go big, go bold, go bright and go multiple!
