On the Friday of London Fashion Week, while the rest of the Style & Then Some team were at other catwalk shows (or, in my case, still at work) our photographer friend Katie Mogridge went to the Orla Kiely SS12 presentation, where she took these beautiful photos of the models as they spun slowly on rotating plinths and reclined on sun loungers. The collection had a demure, almost school girl vibe, which perfectly matched the summer holiday themed presentation and the short film by Mercedes Helnwein that was on show (you can see some stills from it below) – they even served ice cream and adorable pink macaroons. The good old-fashioned British seaside escape was also an inspiration for both Daks and Mulberry at LFW this season. You know what that means: three’s a trend.
