Caroline Charles Spring/Summer 2012 collection at London Fashion Week

Inspiration comes from the thirties, jazz age and the French Riviera.

She starts with relaxed wide leg trouser suits in navy, white and mint green. All accessorised with jaunty boater hats. The jackets just finishing above the hip. The tweed jackets are cut to stand away from the body and the trousers cut to swing.
The boater hat theme continued with   navy day dresses in the thirties style of dropped waistlines, pleated and fluted hemlines.
The colour palette moves away from the navy and whites to a bolder bright sunny orange.
Hand drawn designed prints (no computer graphics) on Como silk followed on blouses, dresses and trousers.
Loving the black and white shorts and jacket – very French Riviera.

After the hot oranges, the cool blues in aqua prints appear in the form of light ethereal dresses.

Black and ivory dominated the eveningwear with sequins and bejewelled embellishments.
Worn with an elegant short pendant necklace of jewel clusters on a wide black ribbon.
