Holly Fulton's printed ladies at London Fashion Week
Day Two of London Fashion Week saw print-queen Holly Fulton move forward into a more 'grown up' SS14 collection this season, albeit with her own personal twist. Renowned for her signature print motifs and fun embellishment, the upcoming designer presented an excitable crowd with head-turning luxurious pieces with a 70's inspired feel - there was no denying that these Fulton ladies were sexy, confident and feminine!
Noted as a celebration of woozy summer days, glittering nights and hazy mornings, the show began with beautiful collaged denim in variety of blue hues, with models carrying oversized fan shaped clutch bags to match. The playful exploration of fabrics and techniques didn't end with the denim, as cork separates continued to instil that 70's vibe, detailing lattice work and linked with crystals. They might not be to everyones taste, but you certainly had to admire the work that had gone into each piece...
Focusing on delivering an elegant yet sexy silhouette, fabrics were luxurious - geometric printed silk dresses were followed by floral pyjama day suits and flowing pleated skirts covered in sugar pink manipulated ribbons, romantic florals, beautiful tangerine fish and my personal favourite, soft grey airbrushed storks. As always, prints and patterns were at the core of the collection, but Holly revealed she was just as capable of holding her own when it came to textures. Delicate tinsel jackets proved popular amongst the fashion set, as did the closing look: a pixelate on paillette encrusted top teamed with a goldfish maxi skirt, lilac fan clutch and metallic Swedish Hasbeens.
