Beyond the Valley
Fashion is having what I would like to call a Valley of the Dolls moment. Was the stark minimalism of Autumn/Winter everything we hoped it would be? Fuss-free easy dressing? No. It was too much like hard work set against a neutral background, and as a result, the SS 11 collections erupted like a volcano that had been simmering quietly for a few seasons. I think it is one of the most exciting seasons that we have had for a while: all rainbow brights; eclectic prints and high octane 70s glamour! Think of diving down a rabbit hole into a new, technicolour world. So much to soak up and look forward to - especially during bleak and frustrating January. I can hardly wait.
