LFW: Basso & Brooke Spring/Summer 2011

There was something more feminine and subtle about the Basso & Brooke Spring/Summer collection. The design duo, Bruno Basso and Chris Brooke, had toned down their usual signature digital prints, and made their designs softer. It was simply because the designers felt that digital print has lost its excitement, due to its surge in popularity - and they're right. However, instead of ditching their design signature, the two worked at reinventing it.

Gone were the full outfits of clashing print, at least in some cases, and in its place, were subtle corners of print, or lighter, less obvious prints mixed onto drapey, soft dresses, some made out of a shimmering fabric. The looks were bright, light and sharp, with a few tailored pieces to hold it all together - a loose trouser here and a shrunken blazer there crept onto the catwalk, making it more sophisticated and smart. The colours used were Summery - a sunny yellow, bright orange and a few shades of brown and blue.

The collection still had that Basso & Brooke hallmark that is so enticing, but with a refreshing spin. It was a case of the label evolving with the current trends, and luckily they were smart enough to do so.
