DESIGNER - Alice Palmer's 'Batman' Collection
While at the My-Wardrobe press evening the other day (more about that soon) I spotted the most amazing pair of spiked heels. It reminded me of the Alice Palmer collection for AW10 which I haven't written about since London Fashion Week.
The AW10 collection named 'Batman' features spike details and fin motifs to create striking silhouettes. The wool used throughout the collection is merino - super soft in other words - and the palette is quite subdued with black being used heavily alongside grey, silver and white. It was definitely the studding that stood out though as it's not something that's generally used within knitwear and must take a great deal of technical skill to do right.
My pics are a bit limited so check out the great collection photos at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout website. I'm now inspired to look for a fabulous knitted dress this winter... suppose I'd better get through summer first though. I also loved the hair and make-up for this show, yet more proof that the strong brow is back!
