Louise Gray's eclectic and vibrant collection did not disappoint

More than with any other designer, I would love to spend a day in Louise Gray‘s brain. She’s playful, eclectic and definitely does not follow fashion ‘rules’ – what could be better than a tour of her limitless imagination.

Her fashion fairy Godmother, Lulu Kennedy of Fashion East, champions her like no other. Kennedy’s company exposes the latest and greatest design talent that is on offer, she was at the SS’12 presentation proudly wearing Gray’s last season designs, reports Vogue.co.uk.

The designer cites “freedom, technology, mirages and sunny days.” as inspiration for this latest collection, after a long cold winter we could all do with a bit of brightening up from Gray. Her knack for mixing textures, prints and most importantly colours is unmatched. Sprinkle in a bit of a punk edge et voilà, you have a whole new vision for SS’12 dressing.

The look

As soon as Gwen Stefani’s dulcit tones, laden with pathos blasted out from the speakers, I knew I was in for a treat. The models, some with their hair dyed candy floss pink, walked the runway with such nonchalance. Attitude just oozed off them.

The collection, entitled ‘Trust me’, beckons you into a world where play and character are all that matters. Sheer dresses with sequins sat over striped neatly collared shirts; panels of sheer fabric diluted the loud prints underneath, and jumpers and tops were appliquéd to the nines.

The people

DJ and girl-about-town Bip Ling was front row snapping looks with her pink smart phone and designer Henry Holland also came to support Louise Gray.

The item

The most covetable garments in my humble opinion were the amazing dizzy printed skirt and short suits. Cute little box-jackets with matching skirts or shorts came in mint with soft pink and greyish blue with red. The print featured distorted spots and was flecked with all sorts of tiny details that confused the eye. One things for sure, my eye is now firmly on Louise Gray.
