Basso and Brooke SS12

Famed for their exuberant use of colour and print, Basso and Brooke showed their Spring/Summer 2012 collection today at the Old Sorting Office.

Having a soft spot for colour and print myself, I'm always guaranteed to love what the design duo have to offer - and of course, this season was no exception.

I was actually lucky enough to be backstage for the show, thanks to ghd for their kind invitation, so had the chance to get up close and personal with the collection before the models hit the runway and the rest of the fashion world clapped eyes on it. Watch this space for backstage gossip and pictures from the show later on in the week.

Every colour imaginable had been used in the collection, but the pieces were far from gaudy or over the top. Brights clashed with muted tones of mustard and taupe in organic, plant or floral inspired signature digital prints. Silhouettes were simple and smooth, fabric was luxurious and accessories were kept minimal, with the exception to the odd statement clashing oversized chain necklace or bracelet that completed a look.

While backstage I also heard whisperings that Basso and Brooke will be making their debut as DJs on a fun filled Friday night on the 7th October! If the soundtrack from the show is anything to go by, you can guarantee it'll be a good one.The night is called Gossip and will be hosted at East Bloc, 217 City Road, London.

I guess we'll see you there!
