LFW Diary AW12: Derek Lawlor

 
A striking designer I came across at LFW for the first time is Derek Lawlor. With a striking AW12 collection that focuses on the interplay between hard and soft, Lawlor builds on his signature form-fitting silhouettes embellished with unusual textures, introducing loose ladder and lace techniques that are reminiscent of delicate cobwebs.
Utilising a mixture of corduroy embellishment and knotted detailing, the results are breath-taking. Mixed yarns of mohair, cashmere and rayon combine to create a highly tactile range of dramatic designs in a monochrome palette accented by blood reds and moody greys.
