Bernard Chandran Spring/Summer 2011 collection at London Fashion Week

Day 2 on London Fashion Week and another early morning start on a chilly day. This time at the Off schedule location of the edgier Old Sorting Office’s industrial hall in new Oxford Street

Titled ‘A Modern Romance’  Chandran keeps pastel hues to a minimum preferring the richer tones of golds, greens, silver and black. 
His clean rectangular silhouettes are given texture through the use of a Malay technique called kerrawang, to create linear prints.
Silk organza sleeveless tunic dresses show a military feel with oversized floating flap pockets and boxed sleeves, whilst the prints reflect the Malaysian rainforest.
Metallics bring fluidity and a sci-fi feel ......
......with liquid silver pieces and..... multicoloured panels on dresses. Here we still see the floating pockets and the boxed sleeves become more exaggerated.
New fabrics used are lurex silk and patent leather.
Evening wear in the guise of embellished structured lapels, one with an extremely low neckline which kept falling off the models shoulder,.....
.....with the last outfit resembling the 1920’s with its long straight camel maxi and ostrich feathers capelet.   
Unfortunately for one model the winged styled shoes with their high and extremely thin killer heels almost made her crash land.
