I am so over Autumn/Winter right now, it’s all about Spring/Summer so bring it on! I can’t wait to whip out my pastel colour pallet and mix it with neon accents and Kurt Geiger appear to be running along the same line of thought. It’s all about glamour, Californian glamour to be more precise, and having seen a sneaky peak at the untouched campaign shots (shot in LA recently) they’ve really set a high bar for competitors.
A few new additions grace the collection for SS12, the presence of Geiger’s first ever bikini in an exclusive print designed by British print designer Joe Duke (Tres Proenza!) and their first in-house designed eye wear collection for which I am already lusting over every pair!
Spring/Summer 2012 see’s the return of KG’s newest venture, accessories. ‘Everything but the dress’ has been the title and tag line for the collection and that sticks for next season. A few trusted favourites have been re-released, the ‘Humbug clutch’ (a ‘must-have’ of this season) has been re-vamped in snakeskin cut leather with pastel hues, still keeping those chunky signature zips. The trinket bracelets are also making a return, fashioned in neons this time round.
“Everything but the dress transforms for spring with a kaleidoscope of Dolly Mixture shades whilst accents of scarlet and neon giva pace to pretty pastels. Soft but not always sweet, the collection has a refined edgy-undertone” Creative Director, Rebecca Farrar-Hockley.
