AW/12 Favourites

Went to see the Hockney exhibition yesterday night. Phew! It is wonderful. Charming, vibrant, life affirming. If you have access to London I would strongly suggest you make the trip. You'll walk out with a smile on your face and a reinvigorated love for the English landscape. Also, if you're anything like me, you'll come away from the exhibition wanting to wear colour. A lot of colour. You'll want to roll around in colour and wear it all. Hockney's colours are so beautiful and so vivid - the pinks, the greens, the oranges, the yellows... 

In honour of that, here are some of my favourite colours of AW/12 so far (not that my catwalk surveillance has been very thorough).

Left column: Lanvin; Vionnet; Nina Ricci
Centre column: Erdem; Christopher Kane; Lanvin; Erdem
Right column: Marc by Marc Jacobs; Carven; Lanvin

Has anyone seen the Hockney? Did you enjoy it? I can't see how anyone wouldn't - it is pretty much enjoyable by definition. Next stop Freud.

P.S. Don't forget to check out my ebay auctions which end tomorrow. Vanessa Bruno, Topshop Unique, Kurt Geiger, all the fun things.


  1. We were justing talking about the Hockney exhibit in my art history class not that long ago. I wish I could see it. The video on the RA site has been replayed (perhaps a bit too much) by me lately. Oh well. I won't worry about it.

    I'm not a big color person when it comes to clothing but I definitely appreciate your picks (especially the Vionnet, first Erdem, and the Carven).

  2. I always end up in love with Erdem

  3. gutted i didn't get to go to the exhibition, when we saw the queue we realised we really didn't have enough time for it. shame, it sounds wonderful. yeah i liked the topman collection, not my sort of thing but liked it none the less

  4. That long red gown makes me wanna cry! :) And for sure once I'm ridiculously wealthy I'll be making a trip to London stat...

  5. I'm going to the Hockney next month, as it happens, and really looking forward to it - glad to hear you enjoyed it, and thanks for the heads up on the colour wearing effects! That Erdem dress is unbelievably beautiful - Erdem always catches my eye.

  6. All these dresses are so elegant <3
