LFW Diary AW12: Dans La Vie

Similar to last season the Dans La Vie show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout was awash with print, in a variety of golden and summery shades, adding welcome colour to a season that can on occasion have a tendency to be muted.
Inspired by an 'Exciting Encounter' of 1960s Pop Art and the spiritual character of a Japanese high priest, 'Kukai', Rira Sugawara's AW12 offering was mysterious, playful and infectious all in the same instance. I particularly loved the oversized faux-fur collars and statement hoods.
A short and sweet showcase, models didn't hang around, pounding down the catwalk in heels by sustainable and ethical label Finsk. Kooky plastic headpieces by Riitta added a welcome variety of block colour. According to the press release the collection 'suggests a new way of popism'. I'm not sure I entirely understand, but whatever it is, I like it!
