A couple days before the commencement at London Fashion Week, I was invited to Charlie May‘s (aka Girl A La Mode) eagerly anticipated debut SS12 collection. Held in an empty room at The Soho Collective, a line of 10 beautifully styled (by Alexxsia) models stood in the burst of sun rays, Charlie presented her collection in sleek, feminine but androgynous feel with monochrome palette and neutral-dusky tones. Varied contrasted fabric textures of tough leather, pony skin, crisp cottons and light silks are key elements in the collection, and the accents of non-perplexed detailings including ties, buckles and gold studs. Seriously good styling and seriously good collection with positive responses from the attendees, Charlie May is a serious contender.
I got my eye on the dusky-nude leather jacket and gold studded headbands.
