Holly Fulton Spring 2011

When I first saw this look from Holly Fulton’s Spring 2011 collection I knew straight away that it would be my favourite of them all. I had started this drawing as soon after the collection hit the runway, but then came the cafe and I had completely forgotten about it till today!
At first, I didn’t even realise from photos on style.com that they were in fact palazzo pants, until I watched the runway video!  For some reason all shades of yellow, especially this mustard colour, are a complete hit with me for next spring (and this season mixed with earthy tones). I never wear yellow as  I have super pale skin and it drowns me out completely, but I think I could possibly get away with wearing this shade?
Her prints are absolutely stunning. My favourite is the broken cityscape but the tribal-esque ones are equally as stunning. Also how amazing are her accessories!? Especially those chunky necklaces, they totally complete the looks. And with the hair referencing Brigitte Bardot, her collection is right up my street!

“For SS11 the Fulton ladies are on tour. Taking Joan Collins as their muse, they have decided on a cruise to escape the tedium of the city and stop off in the chicest resorts de jour en route. Naturally they must look their best at all times so an extensive wardrobe is required to accommodate the heat and hedonism of Monaco, Egypt, Brazil, Hollywood…

Fancying themselves as latter day starlets a la Bardot, the look is rooted in 1960s cruise wear reworked for the modern woman; a sense of contemporary, relaxed luxury is key. “


You wouldn’t think that she had only graduated in 2007! I have a feeling this lady is going to absolutely rock the fashion world in the future and I will certainly be watching for more…
Hope you enjoy what’s left of your weekend! It’s gone way too quick for my liking! :(
Lots of Love
