Block it like it’s hot

London Fashion Week is mere minutes away and it seems only yesterday we were ogling the fruits of the nation’s creative labour for SS/11 and drooling over the mouth-watering summer shades that, in real time,  we will soon be hoisting over and under our lumpy winter bodies. But, it’s February already and we are now looking at what we’re going to be wearing for AW11/12. Jeez. I haven’t started my SS/11 shopping yet! (Small lie, I bought an emerald green dress which I may contrast with canary yellow or aubergine like Gucci did. Not decided yet.)

New York Fashion Week will soon be drawing to a close and it seems that Victoria Beckham’s collection has been the most anticipated, especially since her last collection was a massive hit with the fashpack. The colour-blocking of SS/11 will transcend for VB and move through to Aw/11 in a palette of soft scarlet, sunny yellow and mauve on trapeze-lines and loose silhouettes such as pleated skirts and draped long-sleeve tops.

Did Victoria Beckham loosen the silhouette due to the pregnancy with her fourth child? No, as reports “it’s merely sweet synchronicity.” Just like the collection itself then!
