PDD at London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2012 Part 2 – Accessories

Welcome to part 2 of our musings from London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2012. In this post we pay particular focus upon accessories and jewellery and taking a close look at the finer  details .

Sister by Sibling produced a series of design accessories, including a selection of pullover hats and balaclavas that added drama to their collection. The mainline collection that accompanied this sub-collection was similarly bold, being a great showcase of London as a super-creative hub.

Sophie Billie Brahe’s finely crafted gold jewellery was beautifully presented, adding importance and elevated status to her pieces. Fine, dainty and preciously conceived rings gave juxtaposing messages, being tough, while deeply feminine at the same time.
