London Fashion Week: Spijkers en Spijkers AW12

Running up to Vauxhall Fashion Scout from a show at Somerset House, I felt incredibly lucky to have made it just in time for Spijkers en Spijkers. The room was packed to the brim, with security counting each additional head in to ensure there were no health and safety issues – sure sign of a LFW hot ticket. Entitled “Birds of Paradise”, the collection was clearly inspired by exotic birds with a bold secondary colour palette of mustards, burgundy, forest green, cobalt blue, regal purple and burnt orange. Inspired by the 40s with demure tea dresses and art deco and geometric touches, the collection had a luxe feel with shimmery sheaths of silk and satin and feather accents.
