Yesterday I attended the Starworks London Resort 2012 press preview in London.
The showcased designers included Peter Pilotto, Nicholas Kirkwood, Lucy in Disguise, Marios Schwab, Jonathan Saunders, Tucker and Roksanda Ilincic.
Peter Pilotto continues to give us strong digital prints which buyers can’t snap up quickly enough. The collection also includes some colour-block pieces.
We don’t see the designer enough on the red carpet. Hopefully this Resort 2012 collection will be a huge hit with starlets.
I have attended a few press previews hosted by Starworks, but on this occasion I was presented with more Nicholas Kirkwood heels than ever before.
The most interesting pair were the wedges above which are part of a collaboration between Nicholas Kirkwood and Keith Haring. The shoe designer dedicated a one-off couture line to the Pop Artist after being inspired by his work.
Other pieces within the collection include the pearl accented pumps which continue to be a style favoured by buyers. This style was available as a peep-toe a few seasons ago.
I really loved the acid yellow range which had a neon pink overlay. I can imagine stars like Rihanna, Fergie and Katy Perry snapping these up.
I found the deliberate kink in some of the heels really interesting. You can see this on the turquoise lace ups below.
For those of you who don’t like high heels, Kirkwood has created some flat sandals, moccasins and metallic brogues.
You can currently buy Lucy in Disguise at their pop-up store located at 3 Lowndes Court in London. On August 1 they will be moving to their flagship store at 48 Lexington Street.
The vintage inspired Resort 2012 collection was a mix of day dresses and sassy sequin numbers.
I can definitely see the Duchess wearing that mint green top with the silver sequin embellishments.
The Marios Schwab Resort 2012 collection includes dark fairytale prints on mostly mini dresses. Mustard yellow and petrol blue dresses make up the rest of this enchanting collection.
The Jonathan Saunders Resort 2012 collection continues its use of strikingly prints from the Fall 2011 collection. The Victorian wallpaper patchwork print dress above was one of the many looks on display.
The Resort collection included their signature whimsical prints on dresses, silk blouses, romper and pants.
Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2012 collection had pops of acid lime, orange and blue. Some looks had all three colours mixed into one. The voluminous, floor-length acid lime dress commanded your attention in the room.
The designer also created a 50s inspired swimwear range, which would flatter all body shapes.
