LFW day two: make-up vs crayons

Today London was celebrating the arrival of Moschino Cheap & Chic and the collection screamed 1960s, liquorice allsorts and make-up.

Carrying on SS12’s prominent trend of sugary pastel cuteness, pointy kitten heels, pretty lace and candy colours all featured heavily, as well as bright pink knits with crochet collars, bold buttons teamed with sixties style cigarette trous.

And the best bit? The amazing prints featuring lips, make-up and bows. Just soooo cute. Our biggest criticism: fur, which apparently is real. Eew. Just say no.

Make-up prints with bright lace - is this really for winter?!

The eyes have it

I LOVE this 1960s style coat with cute pointy shoes

Henry Holland also stuck with bright pastels but the shot of primary red (dubbed Crayola red by some) which featured surprisingly heavily in the House of Holland collection, stopped it being too saccharine.

I loved the bright zig-zags in the silk dresses but the 1970s flared leggings with blazers left me cold. The punchy Hounds tooth was very Holland but it was all a little too disco for me. I prefer Holland in his statement tshirt era.

The highlight of the show?

The houndstooth look
