More memories from London Fashion Week Fall 2012. As we all know, the devil is in the detail. And they were some devilishly good details. Sorry, that was really poor, even by my standards. The details, by contrast, are of a very high standard. And again, yellow and red seem to be the pervading LFW AW12 street style colours of choice. Go figure.

Fashion Week seems like an age ago, and I am very bold that I’m only getting around to this post now. I posted about the fasharazzi, and how odd the circus at Somerset House is, but in fact I am an awful hypocrite because I was there, papping away myself. As I noted at fashion week in September, I have a tendency to crop people’s heads when I shoot street style. I am not entirely sure why I do this, perhaps it is a reaction to the blatant showing off that some people carry on with, but it is meant with no malice or conscious thought. I guess I just like the anonymous aesthetic.
Either way, I unconsciously shot a colour story – red and yellow were the two key colours that caught my eye. The message? This summer it’s all about hyper-bright block colour? I’m not actually sure, but this is what the kids in London were wearing at Fashion Week Fall 2012…
Yes I know technically this is closer to green, but close enough. Plus, she’s wearing Acne shoes.

Let’s keep this one short and sweet. Autumn Winter 2012/13 trends, as picked out by moi. AW12 I wanna sink my teeth into.
I am beyond obsessed with all things baroque at the minute. I want to live in a seventeenth century dream for a little minute.
Russian dolls. Folk princesses. Little bit 70′s, little bit Anastasia. Love. It.

Did I mention that I had a ticket for Basso & Brooke’s show and couldn’t go? GUTTED. Especially when I saw what I had missed up close and in detail. The guys have been championing print-clash forever, and right now the fashion world are seeing their way of looking at things. Building on SS12′s obsession with print-on-print, Fall’s offering collages the new graphic geometric. Think houndstooth beside waffle, diamond beside hexagon, squares beside stripes. It’s mostly mid-scale, so that it’s large enough to be seen, but small enough to show a decent amount of repeats – these prints want you to know that they are there. It’s monochromes, purples, blues and reds. It’s really interesting brocades and quilting, creating surface texture in neoprenes and lurex. It’s reminiscent of men’s scarves and questionable ’60′s interiors. It’s graphic, and loud, and definitely not for the faint hearted.
On another note, I have been making moodboards. Here’s one I made earlier.
