Royal Catwalk: London Fashion Week Recap

Bonjour mes chéris! Now that I have caught up on some errands I thought I would officially take the time to recap you on the runway rundowns from the last couple cities. Starting today with a London Fashion Week Recap. The Royal Catwalk in England's capital was a buzz with beautiful gowns and optimistic new trends for Spring/Summer 2012.

Something I noticed on the NYC runways (especially Tory Burch) that are also popping up in London is the revival of the Great Gatsby fashion. Dropped waist dresses of the 1920s, golf prep inspired ensembles, and the gilded glam that always accompanies art deco.

Here Christopher Kane gives you that Great Gatsby example.

Vibrant color and emphatic patterns, get used to seeing these on the racks in surplus.

Burberry Prorsum gave a rich colorful display of this trend,

as well as David Koma but in a more architectural technique.

I love that this girly shape never truly goes out of style, but I haven't seen it this prevalent in retailers eyes for a while. The flirty flounce of the hem in a perfect figure flattering hourglass looks so great on the female silhouette. Not to mention in a soft chiffon, the fabric is as light as you will feel wearing it!

This Felder Felder showstopper is the perfect example.

Keep that color blocking going and throw in some bright fun Spring colors to the mix. Not to mention mustard yellow which has quickly become the latest favorite Pantone.

This Roksanda Ilincic also features the lately popular paper bag waist that are on skirts in about every store. Caution: Only wear this if you are on the smaller side, this is one of those fashion pieces that are not kind to every womanly figure (trop domage bien sur!)

What will you pull from your
London Fashion Week Recap?
