LFW day 3: Tangerine dream

2012 is the year of ‘Tangerine Tango’ and we spotted a lot of orange on the catwalk in London.

I am lusting after a punchy orange coat from Acne. Soft peachy hues contrasted with the strict minimalist aesthetic of the SW12/13 collection, which featured constricting wide belts and stiff leathers next to soft and sporty tailored separates. Pistachios, sky blue and neutrals made up the bulk of the collection. We particularly liked the zip detailing and trousers made of joined panels.

Acne coat - juicy!

Just peachy

Over at Jonathan Saunders there was an abundance of tangerine/vermillion with check and graphic floral patterns, structured belts and sexy sheer panels incorporated into traditionally-shaped a-line skirts and dresses. The biggest USP though was Saunders’ clever and subtle use of different textures. Some editors have pointed out equestrian details and shapes but it was so far from stuffy.

Love this cute floral dress

Minimalism at its best

Super cute!

Thomas Tait opted for buttery tangerine leather and we saw plenty of 2012’s favourite colour on the catwalk yesterday at Mulberry and Bora Aksu.

JW Anderson drew on padded cells and madness for his collection, where the structured jackets had a bit of a strait-jacket feeling about them, especially in clinical white. However, it wasn’t clichéd and we liked the circle skirts and the shiny vinyl details.

A teeny bit similar at J.W. Anderson

Great skirt and more houndstooth!
