Belle Sauvage SS12 LFW

Christian Neuman and Virginia Ferreira present their most sensual collection to date for their fourth season at London Fashion Week.

Lines of powerful feminine elements and voluptuous shapes, are strongly evident throughout a collection of sweeping long gowns, petit cocktail dresses and smart tailoring.  Inspiration hails from 1920's silent Hollywood movie stars. 

Lip curvatures and corset and harness shapes are refined by decorative pleating techniques and rococo elements. The effect equals sleek volume and sophisticated silhouettes. Pastel shades of yellow, magenta range, mint greens and lilacs prevail and prints are deconstructed, slicing through block colour sections that juxtapose the print elements. Fabrics are a mix of soft light silks blended with contrasting luxurious heavy silks and French embroidered tulle.  Signature leather pieces are also present in a more subtle way.
