Check out the rest of Style & Then Some’s LFW coverage here.

Georgia Hardinge was our last show of the day on Friday but it was so worth waiting for. We wouldn’t lie about these things either as we’d be waiting over half an hour for the privilege. But the opening bars of Que Sera Sera set the scene – warm vocals fit for the opening looks of grown up mustard suedes and demure, beige lace up boots.

For AW12, Hardinge showed an interesting mix of blouses, pants and dresses in jewel tones – blues, plums – and printed bodycon jersey dresses with a hint of knitwear thrown in. Some very Miss Marple-esque wide-brimmed bowler hats completed the set-up.

Sometimes the justaposition worked particularly beautifully- as in the greyish-beige knitted jumper with attached snood which Hardinge  layered over a fitted ankle length white and purple dyed skirt. The skirt lengths made it feel lean and effortless and we were a big fan of the boxy pleated boleros in cream and plum.

Things got a bit sculptural around the hip zone for the last AW12 look – this dress encased in a dress wasn’t exactly party wear. But it was a bold taste of what we are yet to see from this exciting British designer – plus she gets bonus Style and Then Some points for looking very chic in her own designs for the bow at the end.

Apologies for the shaky video footage – let’s just say Georgia Hardinge made us go weak at the knees by the time the finale rolled round.
