Caroline Charles London Fashion Week spring/summer 2012 catwalk report

Caroline Charles' London Fashion Week vision of spring/summer 2012 was, as with her a/w collection, topped off with stylish headwear.

Charles crowned short, belted jackets and wide-legged trousers with an array of straw boaters, floppy round hats and wide-brimmed panamas - all in pale straw colours and whites, balanced on pretty plaited buns.

Dresses were worn loosely fitted and elegant. Ladylike, on-the or below-the-knee lengths dominated with the odd ankle-length gown appearing usually with long sleeves nipped in at the wrist in contrast to the short and sleeveless shorter offerings.

The daywear collection had a distinctly Great Gatsby air - stylish and refined. The sort of thing you'd want to wear to eat strawberries and sip tea in the garden of some country manor... Little lace driving gloves even appeared.

Following a western "on-the-praire" theme we noted on the Paul Costelloe catwalk, Charles also accented her shirts and frocks with bolo ties worn in bows at the neck.

Bows and sashes were noticeable on the wide bands of the hat as well as nipping in waists of dresses, shirts and jackets.

Check pants, fitted shirts and ankle-length pants with turn-ups followed with floral print dresses à la Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Caroline Charles sent most of her models down the catwalk in dark sunglasses and low, silver, peep-toe heels but for a selection of loosely fitting wide-leg pant suits, models went barefoot.

The red, navy and neutral colourways gave way to evening wear in navy and black.

Sequins and lace made an appearence but the real focus was pattern picked out in silver and diamante beads scattered liberally over shirts and dresses and clustered at the necklines, cuffs and backs.

Caroline Charles spring/summer 2012 - elegant and refined as always.
