London Fashion Week - Paul Costelloe S/S 2012

Fashion veteran Paul Costelloe kicked off this seasons London Fashion Week with the first show on the schedule. The collection had a strong dose of femininity and sweetness but in a truly elegant manner. Dresses and skirts had a distinctive 60s influence due mostly to the cut and silhouette of the pieces.

The colour palette included muted tones with signature colours of mint green and coral along with wide black and white stripes. Romantic overtones were evident with ruffles, pleats and luxurious embossed fabrics.

2011 trends have centred around the 50s and 70s but judging by Paul Costelloe's show 2012 is all about the swinging sixties. Skirts and dresses are getting shorter and necklines are rising - no plunging cleavage here!

Costelloe seems to really understand the curves and shape of a woman's body and it is evident in the flattering cut of the pieces in the collection.

If this is what we can expect for next season, roll on Spring 2012!

  1. As always Paul Costello opened with a Parisian sleek meets 60’s chic feel in an array of pale pastels and graphic monotones. All easy-to-wear, uncomplicated pieces that will no doubt keep Paul’s core customer base happy.
