Bernard Chandran AW11 collection at London Fashion Week

The show began with a
shocking pink futuristic mini dress, worn with matching tights and shoes (designed by Guiseppe Zanotti) to make sure we’re all paying attention.
This sets the scene for a blaze of all over eye popping colours in reds, oranges, pinks
and a slightly more subdued electric blue. Not the usual autumnal colours here.
Our eyes are sometimes given a rest with the solid classic navy and blacks.
A simple plain black long sleeved maxi dress with an embellished collar and leather peplum surprises us when the model turns around to show the sleeves and shoulders are now diaphanous with a racer back.
Wide zips were exposed and the main attraction was the half peplums giving volume to the pieces.
These ranged from the more traditional short peplum in the same fabrics as shown on a double breasted orange trench coat with tulip style skirt,
to the oversized shiny black bow style on the orange diaphanous lace maxi dress.
The ones which dragged you in were those resembling an open Venus fly trap with feathers at the tips instead of the Venus’ jagged teeth.
Mainly block colours the pattern when it did appear was of a tartan style, and surprisingly subtle being made up various hues of the same colour.
Fabrics used were leather lace, silk velvet, jersey, lace
and not forgetting the ostrich feathers made in to jaw dropping shocking pink and
orange mini dresses.
