Three Different Views Of The Season – Ashley Isham SS 2012, London FW

Ashley Isham Spring Summer 2012

By guest writer Gabriel Weil: First day of London Fashion week, with an 8pm presentation at the pleasant Il Bottacio at Grosvenor Place, Ashley Isham‘s collection showed three different views of the season.

First came the draped jersey with artisanal embellishment. The gummy bean coloured material came gilded with foiled metallic leather, rococo-insipired swirly leather cutouts and some metallic embroideries which provided and artisanal feel to the pieces.

In a second segment paisley appeared in a flat, reduced print in floaty chiffon, a different weight of fabric and a different approach.

White dresses in guipure lace with embroidered accents finished the presentation with another change of direction. Throughout the show’s lengths and techniques were diverse, but they all seemed to cater for tanned skin, hot weather and strong personalities. Veil headpieces that resembled Lacroix brides completed the look, making us think if maybe an exotic beach-side wedding had inspired Isham this season.
