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. Read more…
