department store – s/s 2012
The Department Store shows are always a season highlight. Michelle Weir was dispatched with her trusty camera in hand to capture the highlights for you. While she was behind the camera, she still had a good look at everything and loved the nautical and safari themes coming through for summer. As an ardent lover of all things Karen Walker – the crisp navy and whites were her favourite. As were the Topman stripey tees. She enjoyed seeing I Love Ugly for the first time on the runway and thought they had a strong, cohesive collection. The mens shoes (across the board) would easily take you from the street, straight onto the boat (loafers were boat shoe reminiscent). The Bassike luxury linen pants were also much admired. And just to throw you a bit of curveball, there was a bit of tartan (SGC and Topshop) thrown in for good measure.
So here are Michelle’s photographs
