WINTER IN BLOOM
Florals are back for a/w 2012 but this time round they have lost their soft femininity and have become dark, edgy and more luxe.
Opulence was back on the runway and the more embellishment the better – gem-encrusted silks, metallic embroidery, jewels, crystals, embrodered leathers and opulent over the top prints.
The reigning colour of the season is purple, wear it head to toe from amethyst eyes to violet shoes.
Inspired by the East think obi -wraps, kimono collars and embroidery rich with oriental motifs all in lustorous fabrics and rich sumptuous colours.
Designers revisited the country classics, coudroy, tweed, knits and jodhpurs, with a definate dash of Downton Abbey and a twist of tomboy thrown in all of course in earthy autumnal colours.
