For spring/summer 2012 fashion designer Stella McCartney opted to mimic small references of sport lux; a trend that emerged fully during New York Fashion Week a few weeks ago.

McCartney’s collection however was also a mixture of prints and palettes with spots and swirls – which resembled prints found on neck ties one would buy their father as a Christmas gift – and were blown up over jackets, dresses and trousers. Pyjama style tops and bottoms were also shown alongside different panelled dresses which encompassed paisley print and mesh across the left hand side.

Light red berry tones as well as royal blues and a soft nearly white hue were also incorporated. However, to start the collection McCartney added electric blue silk slinky day dresses and tunic tops matched with black silk and mesh and finished with ornate curling baroque appliqué on their hemlines. This then led onto her signature soft tailored trouser suits with slightly decorated lapels plus all-in-one jumpsuits

For evening wear models also adorned casual yet smart dresses which were sculpted slightly ether around the arms, side area or across the neck with that stylised swirl that was current throughout. For make up models were kept simple and flawless with precision eye brows and a rose-tinted lips, whilst hair was slicked back into a discrete bun.
The show was opened and closed by model of the moment Natalia Vodianova, alongside Natasha Poly and Miranda Kerr whom also made an appearance, as well as Stella’s famous father in the front row: Salma Hayek, Twiggy and Alexa Chung were all present front row as well.
