London Fashion Week ss12 Day 2 highlights

Daks’ thoroughly English seaside-inspired collection, complete with house-check raincoats, sensible sandals and pick n mix treats on our seats

Antoni & Alison‘s open house concept in association with Open House London. They let us into their studio to see their work-in-situ – the resulting collages from these materials were subsequently photographed, then printed onto silk dresses. I made a great little video of Antoni Burakowski talking about the idea which I’ll save for another post…

Sibling’s first womenswear collection, ‘Sister’ inspired by funfairs and tattoos

High-rise mohicans at John Rocha

Sam McKnight’s candyfloss hair for Clements Ribeiro

Rauschenberg-inspired collage-clash at JW Anderson. This season he’s gone more feminine with injections of sexy knitwear and high heels

Palmer Harding‘s white shirt wizardry (as championed by Sarah Mower)

A much subtler approach to colour from Jonathan Saunders compared to last season. I loved seeing the transition from pastels to 50s jewelbox citrines, corals and turquoise as the models came out for their finale
