If there's one thing I loved about LFW this season it's the psychedelic prints that came about. I've always said that if you have a print on a garment, the pattern should be plain, and luckily Basso and Brooke kept this in mind, pairing prints with fur and simple shaped clothing. However, if you have very structured pieces the fabric should be plain to best show it off. Otherwise you're just going to Alexander McQueen wear which can really only be worn on the likes of Lady Gaga in Bad Romance or Naomi Campbell at the Fashion Relief for Haiti show. Richard Nicoll gave an understated but beautifully crafted collection, creating a certain style you can't really put your finger on, but you love all of it put together. Iris Van Herpen joined together elements of McQueen and Pugh as well as Kane to produce a costume style suitable for a Luc Besson film.
