Door 121 AW2012 Press Showing

Last week we went along to Luxe Studios for the Door 121 press day, and what a lovely showing it was! Viewing the winter season ranges for next year, there were some definite standouts to keep an eye on as well as some great footwear and accessories collections. Strong colours for next winter seen in many collections are jewel tones of dark red and green and a return to mustard yellow as a highlight hue. Victoria + Woods had some very covetable knits and leather skirts while jewellery label MAN has moved on from black and white to deep purple and that mustard, adding in crystal pieces to their knotted rope necklaces. We also love Pol Design – they keep coming up with more great knits in yummy speckled weaves.

And the shoes. If you didn’t know, shoes are our weakness and Door 121 is not helping remedy this! Lulu Rouge are doing editorial-worthy heels and boots – check out the blue booties we have already styled in a shoot. A couple of newer labels to look out for doing lovely things with leather are Sole Society and Kobe Husk, and at binge-worthy prices too.

A new label we were introduced to blew us away with its charm and environmental angle: Karmatique features pretty sheer skirts and blouses and the cutest lingerie sets. And what was really sweet was the gift of a pair of cotton embroidered knickers in recycled cardboard box given with sustainability in mind. Organic just got ultra pretty.
