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.
Have a look at the collection below
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.
