Julien Macdonald Spring 2011

George Gershwin’s classic “Summertime” set the dreamy mood for the Julien Macdonald’s Spring 2011 presentation in London this lunchtime.

Editors and buyers sipped cocktails as the PR girls spritzed perfume in the air before the show.

Once the models hit the runway, I thought the dresses – especially the babydoll dresses – could easily pass for lingerie as they were barely-there, short and very revealing.

Rise and fall hems billowed and fluttered down the runway lighter than air.

The colour palette for this sensual collection was mostly neautral with orange, red, blue and black thrown into the mix.

Apart for the underwear as outer part of the presentation we also saw striped jackets, knit dresses, summery maxi dresses and a lace coat.

The models had big poufy hair and pouty glossy lips.

Front Row: Olivia Palermo, Amber Rose, Elle Macpherson, Cat Deeley and Rachel Stevens

Favourites: Striped sleeveless dress and orange floral dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: WAGs, Cheryl Cole and Paris Hilton

    aww, fc! it sounds like you didn’t enjoy the show :( i’ve always preferred jonathan saunders to julien macdonald as i feel they have a similar style, but i can’t say i’m not disappointed to hear that this collection might be primarily worn on WAGs.

    I think that this is wuite a good presentation, seeing as everyone has lost whimsy andisall abotu structure, I think this is a nice undesrstated way to dress, although I do think the show could be misleading, it realyl does seem to depend on how it is worn and who by, the clothes however do have potential.

    I really struggle to see J McD as an equal with other Brit designers such as Jonathan Saunders/Matthew Williamson/Erdem/Temperley.
    His designs invariably lack dignity and class, even Versace seems to carry off ‘sexy’ without making it tacky, and he doesn’t. Though there are some pretty designs above, WAGS and Cheryl Cole says it all :(
