Classy combos, clearly planned proportions, subtle prints and accessories dominated on the Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2012 collection presented during London Fashion Week. The looks presented carried a rather subdued tone, being classy with a modern touch. The drama that the label has gotten us used to over the years is still being sensed and spotted in the eye makeup choices as well as in the hair styling alternatives presented. Though not really suitable to wear in real life circumstances, they add a fun, eclectic touch to the looks presented.

Metallic vibes, fairly abstract prints, pleats and asymmetry are some of the most noteworthy fashion trends spotted in the high end label’s collection for spring 2012. Contrast through texture is left aside in favor of subtle prints or stripes. In terms of accessories colorful clutches, necklaces and hair accessories are the main choices offered.

Evening choices are also presented, albeit this segment is not very well represented. Interest is created mainly through volume and layering. Strapless dresses and one shoulder dresses are some of the alternatives preferred and monochrome options seem to be the simplest and most stress free choices promoted by the brand for the upcoming seasons.
