Sophie Hulme AW12/13

In the Portico Room of Somerset House, lives a golden t-rex made of wood. This of course belonged to Sophie Hulme and her A/W collection inspired by childhood dinosaur toys and mens fairisle jumpers, giving for great nostalgia. Every garment had a dino presence, be it from charms, or belt buckles or even more cute – Sophie had made embroidered lace shirts featuring intricate dinosaur patterns! Being the child I am, I think this has to be one of my favourite collections.

The colour palette of navy, black, grey and fuschia pink on cashmere, mohair and goats leather gave a very cosy feel against the gold dinosaur motifs. The presentation also featured a capsule collection of suitcases made in collaboration with Globetrotter – very luxe! mini bacon sandwiches were handed out to guests along with bloody mary cocktails – at 10am?! welcome to fashion week..
