Basso & Brooke

Bruno Basso and Christopher Brooke showed a ‘Neo-pop’ inspired collection for Spring 2010, continuing to prove their worth as the kings of digital printing. The clothes seemed to buzz their way down the catwalk in a flurry of colour and streaky, often geometric shapes ‘grounded’ by monochrome zig-zags.

Prints and colour are what these two talented gents do best and both were available in droves. Silhouettes shot between body-con and gathered, loose balloon shapes.

While I thought the range was cohesive and covetable, I did feel as though the prints were shown in a little too much abundance-a bit more blank space by way of a pattern-free separate (or more nude/black mesh) would have been welcome on the eye.

My favourite looks? This gorgeous mesh and print combination (below) and a bold mini-dress (image below that) which I can see Little Boots loving.

The dress I would like

The dress Little Boots would like

A rather fantastic feather coat in the audience

A lovely patriotic hat

What a front row! Harold Tillman and Sir Phillip Green watch the show

The hair and make-up was super-sexy: models sported hair and limbs that looked like they had been dipped in oil

A pleasingly-shaped dress

Loving the layering of long-sleeved tees (a good way of getting wear out of summer dresses in winter, too)

Harold Tillman and Sir Phillip Green? That's something you'd love to see as a designer, fingers crossed that some of their stuff crosses over into the high street.
