Twenty8Twelve minus the Miller sisters at London Fashion Week AW12
Instead of the usual high profile on schedule show, where Savanna and Sienna Miller normally bring in a pap worthy front row, today the newly renamed Twenty8Twelve London displayed their Autumn Winter 2012 collection at a presentation at London Fashion Week's Somerset House Embankment Gallery. Ever since we found out the Miller sisters have decided to step down as co-creative directors of the global brand back in January, we expected to see some changes and it appears this is the first of them.
After an eight year partnership with the well known blonde siblings, Twenty8Twelve is continuing under the same design team as ever which was clear to see. Similarly to their Spring Summer 2011 collection, Twenty8Twelve's offering on display today was full of easy to wear casual separates with a cool laid back aesthetic. From loose sheer tops with ultra simplistic lines to even looser cropped trousers, a slick grey tweed two piece suit, loose masculine outerwear tailoring and sporty feel mini dresses with flared skater skirts - the collection on offer was one of variety, depth and ultra wear-ability.
Favorite items had to be the sheer black blouse with paneled detail, pleated black leather mini skirt, luxe masculine feel outerwear and a seriously over-sized snood. Overall, although it may feel as though Twenty8Twelve have lost their secret ingredient(s), it was clear to see the collection still has the London grit on which it has based it's premise, but this season with a clear fresh and contemporary take.
