Burberry Prorsum SS12


London Fashion Week is well and truly in full swing this week with some amazing collections from the likes of Sass & Bide, Mary Katrantzou and Aquascutum but to name a few. However, we all know that TellusFashion and the rest of the fashion world were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the next Burberry Prorsum collection from Christopher Bailey. Its fair to say that we were not disappointed!

For SS12, Bailey took the brand in a new direction this season, bringing us more detailed garments full of print, weaving, braiding, beading and plenty of soft spring colours. Not forgetting the signature trench which appeared on the catwalk in a stunning aqua blue for the coming season.

Emerging Talent: Mungo Gurney

It’s TellusFashion’s goal to promote the newest talent in fashion, whether that may be in fashion design or any other form of artist within the industry (photographers, make-up artists, hair stylists – you name it) so I take great pleasure in introducing to you an extremely talented designer, a graduate of Central St. Martins College in London – one of the most well established fashion schools in the country, and the only school to ever showcase its students creativity and hard-work on the runways at London Fashion Week. Tellusfashion readers, feast your eyes on Mungo Gurney.

Mungo Gurney is renowned for his outlandish prints which are said to be inspired by many different places around the globe. He has unleashed his very first ready-to-wear swimwear collection to the world which presents itself as a bohemian homage to Northern California and Southern Europe.

In a statement from the designer, his spring summer 2012 collection ” sees bold, modular prints created in a vibrant alchemy of rich navy-blues, fresh mint-greens, soft rose and beige, along with graphic primaries. Forms take shape in graphic dots, art-nouveau motifs and block prints drawn from Matisse’s abstract involvement with architectural decoration.”

Looking at Gurney’s collection, it is obvious to state that the shapes of his pieces remain simplistic yet don’t deny the garment of feminine silhouettes (The clever use of print on the dress and the use of darker colours give the illusion of parts such as the waist, being synched in) and could be said as being reminiscent of the 1920s French Riviera look. We absolutely adore what Mungo Gurney has created here and we will most definitely be watching to see what’s next in his creative pipeline. His work is effortlessly cool and can be translated easily from the catwalk to your wardrobe.

Take style notes this AW from…Cruella De Vil?!

Yes, it’s true that Cruella might just inspire your style this season thanks to her obsession over dalmation print, however TellusFashion aren’t as cruel to try and kill 101 puppies to stay on trend. Thanks to Topshop Unique at last fashion week, we have pretty much fallen in love with the cutsie dalmation print and here are some ways you can wear it this season without going over your highstreet budget…

Creepers are all the rage this season, so why not grunge up your dalmation spots with these customised Dalmation Print Creepers by Underground for Topshop

or keep cosy and warm in this Topshop faux fur swing coat

 

Dalmation Print Top – Oasis for ASOS.com

If you prefer to keep it subtle with animal prints then channel the look onto your fingernails using a matte white colour as your base (Alpine Snow by OPI) and careful dot on your spots using a plain black nail varnish (Black Onyx by OPI) and a fine nail art brush (nail art fine detail brush at essentialnails.com)

Alexa Chung for Madewell

We all know and love Alexa Chung for her effortlessly cool style. Most girls would kill to have a piece of that style and it has been made possible with Alexa’s latest collection for fashion brand Madewell.

Madewell originated in Massechusetts, America and produced workwear . Its now more commonly known for its hip, indie fashion, making it the perfect brand for Alexa to be associated with.

Alexa’s second collection with the brand is said to be a mixture of 1970s and 1990s influence, with a very ‘girls in bands’ feel to it.  Take a look at the promotional video for the collection below.

We love it. Tellus what your thoughts are on her latest collection.

Givenchy Couture AW11

Riccardo Tisci has brought so much to the Givenchy label since he was made creative director in 2005. I would give him the same credibility for transforming the Givenchy label into a modernised fashion brand as I would to Christopher Bailey and his work at Burberry. I think the thing that draws me to the Givenchy couture line now is that Tisci has brought an edge too the fashion house and has infused the brand with more imagination than its ever had before.

It comes as no surprise that his AW11 haute couture line is more than just fashion. It represents true imagination, creativity and craftmanship from the designer. Tisci used a variation of different embellishments and fabrics to create his stunning couture line including, tigers-eyes pearls with crystals which were used to replicate ostrich skin and one dress was constructed with perfectly symmetrical hand cut tulle pieces of fabric to create the illusion of fish scales. Amazing.

Channeling this seasons trends on a high street budget

Like most girls my age, I am very limited to what I can buy fashion wise. I am a recent graduate who has yet to find my dream career in the fashion industry so I’m still living on a student budget, earning close to part-time wages. Therefore, I need to find ways to create a catwalk look at a lower cost (Luckily for me, I love the British High-Street so I still get a lot of satisfaction from buying from there).

The trend I love most this season is the ‘Fetish’ or what some call the ‘Domintarix’ trend. Personally I think it’s the fact that black is the key colour for the trend (a major trend in my wardrobe). However, this trend is not for the faint hearted and catwalk collections from the likes of Mugler presented pieces that fully represented the trend in all its glory.

I however, don’t have near enough fashion confidence to pull that off so I scoured the high-street to put together a toned down version of the trend… check out my high-street finds below and Tellus what trends you will be channeling this A/W!
