We’re a few days late and more than a few dollars short with our London Fashion Week wrap up, but there were some fab collections that we must share our opinions on.
As always, Christopher Bailey sent an amazing collection down the runway for Burberry Prorsum. The Burberry girl is going to be very colorful this spring and we couldn’t be happier about it. In addition to the line’s iconic trench coats, which Bailey always finds a way to spice up, the Spring 2012 collection was a plethora of t-shirts, midi skirts, and gathered dresses. It sounds simple, but Bailey was sure to incorporate handwork like beading, crocheting, weaving, and printing into almost every look, including the shoes and bags. How insane are these wedges? We’re getting on a wait list for them yesterday.
The rest of our favorite looks from LFW are right this way.

Mrs. Wesley Sneijder attended amfAR’s charily gala in Milan on Friday night. She wore a gorgeous and dangerously plunging dress by designer John Richmond. You may recall that Yolanthe walked the catwalk for Richmond at his Fall 2011 show last February.
All jokes aside about Yo’s ample and extremely visible cleavage, she looks pretty hot, yes? Her hair is as amazing as ever, her blue nails are fun and on trend and is that a bracelet with a sparkly panther head on it? We think so and it’s fab.
Yolanthe tweeted this morning that she’s hosting a dinner for her charity in Amsterdam tonight. No, it’s not for those with dull, lifeless hair. It’s a charity to end child abuse in Amsterdam. Fair play, Yo. Not let us borrow that bracelet.

London Fashion Week is blowing us away so far, Kickettes. We suppose London could be considered the third runner up of fashion cities (behind Paris, Milan, and New York), but after seeing some of the collections that have come out for Spring 2012 we think London may take the crown this year.
Read on to find out why!

Just as the redness from the New York Fashion Week slap in the face starts to abate, it’s all over! Luckily there are two more fun filled weeks of new Spring 2012 collections from London, Milan, and Paris to keep us going. First we must wrap up New York , though. We shared our favorite first half looks so now here are our favorites from the shows that took place during the second half of the week.
J. Crew has long been one of our favorite American high street chains. Thanks to the magic of Net-a-Porter.com, it can be purchased world wide and we hear there are plans for a London flagship store in the works. J. Crew has always made affordable, stylish clothing and their styling is some of the best in the biz. We have actually contemplated framing pages of their catalogs to use as art.
We love the look above because it takes something so utilitarian (the denim shirt) and pairs it with something glam (the rainbow sequined midi skirt) to make it a completely acceptable look for day or night. No one does this better than J. Crew! Click here to see the rest of the Spring 2012 collection.

You all had some very strong opinions on Sylvie’s last look. To sum up, you thought she looked like a wax work member of the Jersey Shore cast. Way harsh, Kickettes.

Sara Carbonero, la novia del Iker Casillas, presented a new watch collection for Lotus in Madrid last night. Her coveted hair (seriously well done Pantene) blinded us temporarily and then we looked down. Sequined culottes!
3.1 Phillip Lim sequined culottes to be exact. You can call them shorts, but we prefer culottes. It’s a funny word and it reminds us of the ’90s.
Now, this might come as a shock, but we are totally loving these. It’s such a great departure from a skirt or dress and Sara’s stylist smartly paired them with a plain silk top and some hot as Jimmy Choos in the same neutral color. Brava, Pasta. Brava.
What do you think, girls?

We know we’re on Victoria overload here so unless Harper walks on water within the next week (totally possible) we’ll cool it for a bit it after this. We are pretty excited about Victoria’s new diffusion line, though, and we want to share it with you.
This way please.

It seems like Fashion Week creeps up on us every year. We know it’s coming, but we’re never prepared and then boom it’s there all in your face. Kinda like when Joey Barton has a “moment.”
There are designers who never disappoint us and who we’ll miss vital spa treatments for in order to make sure we’re parked in front of our trusty laptops for their live streaming runway shows. One such designer is Diane von Furstenberg. She’s the first lady of fashion, she looks hotter at 64 than we ever will and she did her pre-show interviews yesterday with a can of Stella Artois in her hand. She’s our inspiration.
The look above is one of our favorites from her Spring 2012 show, which had a sweet yet modern 1960s feel. If DVF says wear it, then we will.
