London Fashion Week has hardly had time to get out of it’s high heels and massage it’s sore feet yet already journalists are waxing lyrical about this season’s trends. Award winning clip on earring specialist jewellers, make-me-beautiful.co.uk, were at Somerset House to meet colleagues, be wowed by suppliers and to survey the latest trends. Make Me Beautiful founder, Misae Richwoods, outlined three key trends in accessories for S/S12:
1. Get Feminine – With Bora Aksu, Jena Theo and Emilia Wickstead exhibiting bare-breasted models on the first day’s catwalk’s alone, London Fashion Week S/S12 steps away from it’s recent flirtation with androgyny to re-declare a passionate love affair with the female form. Think elegant curves and shapes, daintily finishing often with a subversive or slightly sinister twist adding a bit of playful cheekiness.
2. Geometrics Make a Statement – Powerful Aztec shapes with angular cuts and asymmetrical finishes make the season’s statement wear as Holly Fulton, Jaeger London and Sass and Bide all bounced the house in bold numbers. Brilliant Swarovski crystals, oversized pearls and multi-textural bodywork provide perfect staging and emphasis with sharp colours and spiky shapes that flashback the 80s
3. Keep it Natural – With florals (Erdem, Christopher Kane and Ashish) and animal prints (House of Holland) making their way onto the catwalk a range of decorative reminiscence backs it up with Cabinet including antlers, Renaissance featuring deers, Mawi showing their Minnie Mawi collaboration with Disney Couture and Les Néréides showing a whole arc full of cute characters and cheerful flowers.
Fashion156 Magazine tweeted afterwards, “LFW is so strong this season. Reminds me of McQueen’s LFW era when you walked out of his shows feeling you could bounce over a skyscraper.” Make Me Beautiful announce they will feature a curated collection of some of the most desirable and wearable pieces from some of the brightest designers as they increase choice in their specialist clip on earring collection.
