LFW: Holly Fulton SS11

Still perched on the edge of my well chosen spot and with hardly a pause in-between shows, the track was changed from David Koma's parade and Holly Fulton's SS11 collection was ready to be revealed.

For yet another season, Holly Fulton managed to adapt her signature art deco graphic prints into a wholly wearable collection. Taking inspiration from Joan Collins, Fulton drew on elements of 60’s cruise-wear for the modern women. Printed silk palazzo trousers, jewelled shift dresses and sarong skirts moved away from the simple monochrome palette with splashes of canary yellow, azure and refreshing mint. Fur and python panels added extra luxury and hand-cut patent leather pieces made the collection have an exclusive air. Luggage echoed graphic prints and chunky perspex jewellery brought through Fultons love for art-deco design.

After the show the collection was moved the the NewGen Space at the back of Somerset House. Holly came down to celebrate, sporting one of her own designs. Her monochrome art-deco prints can hardly go unnoticed!
