Nicole Farhi welcomed fashionistas to a garden party at the rather aptly venue: the Royal Horticultural Society. Her spring/summer 2012 collection showed a designer who has come into full bloom after 30 years in the industry, offering a bouquet of tulip-shaped dresses and skirts in hues of sunflower yellow, clementine orange and candy pink and rose-prints.
Farhi’s love for experimenting with the fabrics was noticeable, showing tunics in exaggerated mesh and leather laser-cut flowers and plastic sequins on shirts.
And those retro orange sunglasses were amazing. We’re so adding it to next year’s summer shopping list!
