Falguni and Shane Peacock Spring/Summer 2011 London Fashion Week show
Up there in my top 3 London Fashion Week shows, Falguni and Shane Peacock's Spring/Summer 2011 show had it all.
From graphic print floaty maxis to hard-wear studded body con dresses there was something for every occasion. Armour was a common theme throughout the collection with metal plates featuring on shoulder pads, bra cups, belts and even knee pads on trousers. Graphic prints had a certain organic look about them and with the collection taking inspiration from animals 'under the threat of extinction' prints resembled scales, bees and tiger stripes.
A particular favourite of mine was a yellow and black graphic print body with oversized studded Perspex shoulder pads, simply teamed with sheer black tights and lace-up black ankle boots. Not necessarily what I'd chose to wear for work let's say, but more a piece I'd want to hang on the wall and play dress-up in every now and then perhaps pretending to be a super hero...
Hair was worn down and make-up was kept equally simple with black eyeliner and peach blusher.
Am already finding myself looking forward to what the Indian design duo have in store for us next season. Roll on February Fashion Week!
