London Fashion Week, Look 5 - Full Skirts

Carrying over the fifties and sixties looks from SS11 and AW11 - the full skirt remains.  It's silkier, it's brighter (in places) and it's been printed in every way it can imagine.  It's even sexier than last year, with the odd thigh split here and there. So many designers worked this look, and here are our favourites:

Acne kept it simple - and contrasted the theme with use sharp colours, which somehow even white appeared to fit into when combined with the rest of the collection.  Structure is the main change from SS11 - this are by no means floaty.  Having a stiffy could take a whole new meaning (I'm sorry, thats awful).

Daks made the look almost nautical, with sailor stripes and breton colourings - mixing it up with the odd bit of beige.  It would risk being borderline boring was it not for the cut outs at the front, where a pair of shorts were added to save a lady's grace.  Worn with tailored shirts and shift cut tops - this look will no doubt become a work wear theme for the bold.

Peter Pilotto kept up the British trait of being masters of print and silk design with his wonderful collection.  So different to the majority, he paired his full skirts with heeled gladiator sandals in bright colours (you wince now but I bet you'll be loving them come spring), sportsluxe necklines and bright prints.  The blue toned dress is one of my favourites from the whole week.

Jonathan Saunders went for big and bold - also making sure his skirts were anything but floaty.  Fantastic silk prints, again strengthening the Brit packs reputation, mixed with bold colours and strong cuts.
