London Fashion Week – Caroline Charles Spring/Summer 2011

18 Sep

Caroline Charles is known for her chic, sophisticated aesthetic –  I remember walking out of the show last season thinking ‘that’s how I want to dress when I’m older’. I mean that in the best way, I love her shows. For Spring/Summer Caroline is channelling 1950s/1960s glamour, the collection featured bright floral prints, skinny waist belts and long gloves. The skirt suits were slightly reminiscent of Chanel, very prim and chic. The models seemed to be having fun on the catwalk, quite a lot of them were smiling and one even shimmied for the photographers! All in all, I thought it was a good collection, grown up glamour with some pops of colour and a sleek silhouette. 

Caroline Charles Autumn Winter 2010

22 Feb

Not being overly familiar with designer Caroline Charles, I wasn’t too sure what to expect from her show on Friday morning. The show itself was split into three parts, very prim and English daywear, luxe bohemian and elegant eveningwear. The daywear looks had classic belted silhouettes, country tweeds and a gorgeous Autumnal colour palette of moss greens and browns. The fabrics used for luxe bohemian looks really caught my eye, lots of silk, velvet and beading in gorgeous jewel colours. The evening looks were almost too elegant, floor length black gowns with some amazing beading. My favourite piece was a heavily embellished gold jacket paired with black latex leggings. The show closed with a bride in black with two gold clad bridesmaids.
