CRAIG LAWRENCE A/W12 SALON SHOW AT LONDON FASHION WEEK: BY KATIE TILLYER
Craig Lawrence's knitwear collection brought together deep browns, orange accents and shimmery metallics in a show that felt sophisticated and luxurious, despite the colour inspiration of National Express coach seats.
Ladylike full skirts featured, along with longer lengths that were slinkily sheer for a younger wearer. Much of it tapped into the 90s vibe that seems to be here to stay, and the snuggly cropped jumpers gave an overall glam-grunge feel to the collection. The glistening metallic yarn cut through the dense browns, meaning that the richness of palette and texture set a perfect autumnal scene.
