Aquascutum Spring 2012

Aquascutum’s Spring 2012 collection was presented in a beautiful ballroom inside the Corinthia Hotel in London yesterday morning.

Joanna Sykes presented a cool, chic, pretty collection for the woman who doesn’t need to try too hard.

We saw many updated staples like the trench coats which were made of plastic, skirts which were draped and layered to give off an aching cool vibe and a bobble knit cardigan that was paired with a plastic skirt.

Tweed jackets with matching pants, sheer blouses, basic tees, fluid dresses, boxy cropped jackets, lace trim oversized shirts and palazzo pants were presented on a mostly neutral colour palette.

Pops of neon yellow via dresses, tops and shoes ensured the collection didn’t feel too one note.

Key accessories included duffle shaped bags, beach bags with rope handles, and loafers.

Paul Hanlon use L’Oreal products to slick back the model’s hair, whilst Lucia Pieroni created a flawless finish with MAC cosmetics.

Front Row: Kara Tointon (yes Dawn who used to be in Eastenders)

Favourites: Neon yellow dress and silk grey jacket and pants paired with white tee

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Julianne Moore, Diane Lane, Kristen Stewart, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Natalie Massenet, Ashley Greene, Alice St. Clair, Hilary Swank, Helen Hunt, Evan Rachel Wood and Diane Kruger

    I rather like this collection, but I’m worried about the plastic that several designers are using. It seems to me it would be very uncomfortable and stiflingly hot.

    The neon yellow dress looks A LOT like the one in the S/S 12 Tibi collection. They even used an Asian model too.
