LOUSIE GRAY SS12
Louise Gray is basically a Dream Boat! Every collection season to season just gets better and better and her design aesthetic is strong, messy and manic and totally rules the runway in some kind of visual explosion! I honestly think Louise Gray SS12 Killed fashion week! It is the best collection I have seen so far this season! With a mismatched combinations of prints, patterns, textures and fabrics which made for one of the liveliest and most dynamic collections of the whole week. Colour was everywhere with pinks, reds, blues and yellows to name a few. Prints felt tribal with messy geometric patterns overlaid with ornate embellishment to enhance the ethnic feel. I love the combination of embroidery, over embellishment, patches of appliqué, beading, hap hazard styling and fusing different textures that nobody would dream of having side by side. To top it all off the models came strutting down the run way looking like dishevelled rag dolls wearing bright woven-soled flatforms, yet another collaboration with Nicholas Kirkwood for Pollini!!! I need absolutely everything in this collection! Once again Louise Gray you are AMAZING!! Can you be my new best friend?
