Lako Bukia Spring/Summer 2012 collection at London Fashion Week

This poor woman was suffering from a high temperature a few days before the show but ever a professional the show must go on and what a show. 
This season the inspiration was simple – Asian trees and flowers, but the results were beautiful hand drawn flower prints, the first time Bukia had introduced a print to her collection.  
The show started with flowing grey chiffons grounded by structured white mandarin collars, 
with only a glimpse of red showing on chiffon shorts ...
and blouses as the oversized flower print. 
The monochrome returned with an ethereal tree print silhouette on a white background. 
The red then made its dramatic entrance in the guise of silk satin cropped trousers...
followed quickly by a red satin bodice teamed with a wonderful pair of wide legged trousers in black and white wide horizontal stripes with the overlap of the large red flower print. 
These were my favourite until a red and white vertical striped empire line chiffon dress came along with its red silk satin cut away bust and pauldron. 
Lako's signature triangular heels were ever present , here lovingly tied up in a chiffon bow.
