Bora Aksu was one of the first collections to walk down the catwalk this year. There wasn't an obvious theme throughout, but there was a running fabric: netting. The majority of outfits had at least one panel of netting or lace in it, which uniquely pulled the pieces together. The colours used were white, baby pink, ice blue, navy, black and once appearance of bright purple. With the frequent use of lace, comes an almost overwhelming sense of heritage, even for new designer and brand.
Julien Macdonald, long time designer and now a ex-strictly contestant, brought us absolutely flawless collection this year. It was intricate, sleek, and detailed. With many of the dresses screaming bridal, there was beading, lace, stitching and everything any one with a love of fine couture would want.
Chrisopher Kane's collection was by no means a typical S/S collection. Full of dark colours and heavy textures, this collection would have been far more suited to an A/W, but nonetheless suitable in a place like Scotland, where Christopher Kane is from. One repeating thing we saw was the use of rope, otherwise known as macramé. He used in a beautiful way which enhanced the pieces it was on to no end. With the uses of silk and satin, this was a luxurious collection, but no-one would expect anything less.
