Nicole Farhi s/s 2011 catwalkPA

INSPIRATION: Artist Christo's "revelation through concealment" technique.

TOP LOOKS: Silk dresses in salmon pink and citrus yellows, white, patent leather shifts, soft floral prints layered under nylon mesh, shimmering dresses in midnight blue and silver embellished with sequin paillettes, long, evening gowns with white gold fringing.

ACCESSORIES: A mix of flat sandals and colourful heels on the feet and skinny, perspex belts sat high on the waist.

WHO WAS THERE: Anna Wintour was spotted in Prada on the front row.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: The feminine, floaty fabrics were given a tough, raw edge with the addition of criss-crossed canvas straps and abstract prints. While the overall look was clean and contemporary, the brighter greens and pinks added a splash of spring time colour amongst the white, greys and beiges.
