Caroline Charles Spring/Summer 2011 collection at London Fashion Week

There was a mixed reaction to this sleek ladylike lux inspired collection as you instantly thought ‘mother of the bride’ due to the lengths of the skirts which are either on the knee or just below............
..............., plus the accessories of hats, long gloves and kitten heels .
For day wear there are sleeveless dresses in brightly coloured 50’s print floral silk, polka dots and animal prints. Suits have full or pencil skirts and boxy jackets in white, black and yellow.
All cinched in with skinny leather belts of various colours.  Black Capri pants and leggings give a more youthful feel worn with tunic shirts in a monochrome check and a leopard print. Although not sure on the skull caps which looked suspiciously like rubber swimming hats.
 For the evening, dress shapes vary from the shift dress to the full volume skirt.
Colours are of soft golds.....
....., pearls, reds and black. 
LBDs are accessorised with diamond and pearls. Lots of sequins and beads. 
The leopard print shift dress with draped neckline......
........And the monochrome dog tooth twin set edged with red.
This collection probably won’t appeal to the younger woman but then again the it is right on track for Ascot, Goodwood and Henley’s where fashion rules are not to be broken if you want to get in.
