Jasper Garvida Spring/Summer 2012 collection at London Fashion Week

Titled ‘Autour d’un Point’ after Frantisek Kupkas’s painting of a succession of small shapes which form abstract circles. 
You can see a black and white version of the painting cleverly incorporated in to his animal print.
This season’s collection sees circular shapes of metallic adornments over soft fabrics,
metallic circular embellishments on skirts and dresses emulating the painting...
and sequins overlapping to create the illusion of 3D studded pattern on oversized pockets...
..., pauldrons and waistlines. 
The oversized metallic pockets bring dimension and interest to the little black dress 
and glamour to the long simple jackets. 
The black and white abstract print is a breath of fresh air as an alternative to wearing a pure animal print.
Also inspired by Diana Vreeland, his muse for the season, and for her ability to blend hard and soft elements, his collection plays on all things contrasting- light and shade, day and night, hard and soft.
Like the painting the colour palette is contrasting black and white...
with metallic hues of silver and gold.  
This collection seemed to have something for everyone:
the more structured dresses,
the long flowing dresses
soft blouses with oversized frilled sleeves, 
tailored trouser suits, 
a 60’s take on space age wear with metallic embellishments
 lots of bling 
and a tribal nod with a modern twist from the abstract print.  

Oh! And did I mention I absolutely love his print!
