London Fashion Week SS 2012 Favourites

I had to restrain myself from downloading excessive amount of photos from fashion weeks' London installment, especially from Burberry and Mary Katrantzou shows. The details are just incredible and I'm already planning a thrift trip to look out for similar designs or close to. Again, I don't know squat about ~fashion~, I'm just a fan of pretty prints.

London Fashion Week SS 2012 Favourites Burberry Prorsum
The details in this collection is beautiful. The weaves, beads and knits on rich colors of fabric remind you of ethnic inspirations and form texture and patterns that are just charming.

London Fashion Week SS 2012 Favourites Christopher Kane
The clothes this season remind me of floral wallpapers worn as clothes by school girls.

London Fashion Week SS 2012 Favourites Holly Fulton
Correct me if I'm wrong but this reminds me of the 60's...

London Fashion Week SS 2012 Favourites Matthew Williamson
The prints and colors are just delicious.

London Fashion Week SS 2012 Favourites Meadham Kirchhoff
I first heard/read of Meadham Kirchhoff on Tavi's blog, Style Rookie. She's a Courtney Love fan, so are the men behind the brand. You can, as expected, see references and inspirations from the Hole frontwoman. I love the bubble gum colors, cute tops and, uhm, the balloons. "I wanted to take them off the cake, and put a real girl up there...A real girl not defined by feminine frippery, though she may occasionally indulge in it." - Ed Meadham

London Fashion Week SS 2012 Favourites Mary Katrantzou
I. Can't. Even... Her work blows me away. When I first saw her clothes featured on Susie Lau's blog, Style Bubble, last year, I knew I found someone who's a genius. Her prints are marvelous! I won't even pretend I understand the process that goes on to these clothes - digital textile printing or whatever - but the finished product is astounding. I remember being *moved* by Haider Ackermann's Fall 2011 collection and I had the same feeling now with Katrantzou's Spring/Summer offering. If I could say something her personally (I follow her on Twitter), I might tell her I love her. LOL! *fangirling*
