Craig Lawrence Spring/Summer 2011 collection at London Fashion Week

Titled ‘Siren Mermaids’ the collection was inspired by Sirens of Greek mythology and the fantasy world of mermaids.
Using cutting edge materials such as Japanese Kyototex metallic yarns in his knitwear techniques, Lawrence enables the garments to glisten as if wet.  Colours are peacock green, silver and white.
Long tube maxi dresses cling to the models like mermaid tails with the two toned greens and silver creating the illusion of fish scales. The garments are also turned inside out to show web like textures and chain mail detailing which adds to the illusion.
A white strapless tube maxi is adorned with loose long yarns like floating seaweed,.....
......whilst an empire line maxi is covered with feather-like yarns to represent sea foam.  
 Very mystical.
