Pippa Middleton was the celebrity that colleagues wrote about on day ﬁve of London Fashion Week, with her appearance at the front row of Temperley London. The Temperley spring–summer 2012 collection itself was feminine, ﬂowing, and had a tasteful use of silks and extensive vintage detailing.
Mary Katrantzou’s collection made us notice. We had seen plenty of colour emerge this season in days one through four, but we didn’t expect her to surpass some of her more extravagant past designs with intricate patterns and print-covered outﬁts. Katrantzou’s inspiration was the collision of natural and industrial forms, with plumage and foliage clashing with embroidery, beading and Swarovski crystals.
Meadham Kirchhoff’s spring collection was upbeat and fun, with baby doll, apron and pompom dresses, leotards, and tutus. Look closely and everything is well crafted and well tailored—which is why Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff continue to get admirers and grow their reputations.
Amanda Wakeley upped the glamour in her spring–summer 2012 show. There was plenty of volume and we saw the return of draping, allowing her fabrics to ﬂow with ease in dresses and kaftans. The colour palette was restrained to begin with, but got increasingly colourful toward the end with gold, burnt orange and light blue.
