With haunting music and a slightly Oriental sound, Neilsen dipped into a dark Victorian mood for SS12, playing on duplicity by pulling the collection into modernity and incorporating a present day Japanese twist. Entitled ‘Arbiter Elegantiarum’; a judge on authority in matters of taste, Nielsen's models walked super slowly down the catwalk as if under some sort of spell.
Displaying an altogether well considered, superbly designed and perfectly finished collection it is hard to believe that this is only Nielsen's second collection, proving that she is most certainly one to watch each and every season. I certainly can't wait for the next instalment of Nielsen's fashion theatre.
