BT2 Spring/summer 2012 fashion Preview

Hello!

This week saw BT2‘s first preview fashion show in 5 years. The cooler, younger sister of Brown Thomas, offers a brighter, alternative, more casual way of dressing with collections from fashion houses including, Sandro, IRO, Maje and Lucy in Disguise. It also stocks designer diffusion lines from Karl LagerfeldKARL, Alexander Wang – T, Victoria Beckham Denim and Isabel Marant – Étoile among others.

Of the new season trends, BT2‘s must haves go like this:

  • The dress – The shapes, style and proportion is key. Think bright and clean lines as shown by Raoul and DVF
  • Denim – From Victoria Beckham‘s poppy red to Current Elliot‘s pretty pastels
  • IRO‘s – trophy jacket in rich tomato red. See either the Ashville in washed leather or the Agnette in distressed bouclé tweed. See below:
  • Lightweight Tailoring – COS‘ pared back aesthetic
  • Shoes – The Superga trainer

While I agree with many a fair point made there, these are my favourite pieces from the show; my if I could I would choices, as it were.

The Dress‘Licorne’Who? Maje. Why? Leather trim and peplum (I am delighted that the peplum has made a return!)

OR

The Dress – ‘Penelope Gown’Who? Raoul

Why? Silk Georgette and leather maxi

Denim‘Sunbleach Peach & Poppy, Power Skinnies’ Who? Victoria Beckham Denim

Why? Thick, silky soft denim is rare especially when it’s tight enough to define your calf muscles.

I like the red but I want the peach. The shift tops are also pretty stunning.

Lightweight Tailoring‘Rolled Neck Tee’Who? Raoul

Why? Hot pink silk and button down at the back, like a reverse shirt surprise; great when worn under…

A grey trouser suitWho? The Kooples

Why? Turn up collar and matching chest pocket hanky and cuffs.

Shoes‘AustraliaWho? CarvelaKurt Geiger

Why? Fuchsia pink suede peep toes

On another note.

KARL by Karl LagerfeldSilver leather collar and matching skirt, with cotton Karl Lagerfeld-emblazoned TShirt… Is a bit odd… Discuss.

Yours,

Whisty Xx

    those peach skinnies are a dream. Perfect for those S/S days when it’s chucking it down with rain!
