WHO? Craig Lawrence

IN A NUTSHELL: Inspired by Martin Parr's photographs of the British seaside, Lawrence created a rich, textured knitwear collection in muted, pastel tones. Lawrence embarked on his first collaboration with Swarovski and debuted his first print designs on the Spring/Summer catwalk.

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: It was impossible not to fall in love with the knitted Swarovki yarns, which shimmered and sparkled throughout the presentation. The rose coloured knitwear layered with screen printed tights added depth to the muted tones and we couldn't fail to notice the swimming cap style headgear on show.

VERDICT: The understated pastel tones on crystal embellished garments were nothing short of beautiful. A subtle yet charming collection that made knitwear look very wearable for Spring/Summer.
