Matthew Williamson // It seems like the FW 12 season is going to be seeing lots of color and that's exactly what we got from Matthew's collection for it's fifteenth anniversary. From sky blues, plums, citruses, dark chartreuse, and turquoises, the Williamson woman was ultra chic and glamourous from feathered details to glittering sequins. A MW collection isn't a full MW collection without his signature prints, and the designer brought out a mix of of them that were equally abstract as they were sexy. View the full collection here.

Peter Pilotto // For his FW 12 season, Peter brought out an explosion of prints that were electrifying to say none the less. In terms of his prints, they're definitely different from what I've seen this season, but I enjoyed them. I thought they were abstract, appealing, and also sexy. I will say that I was kind of annoyed by all the cut outs on the dresses, but then again that's one of Peter's aesthetics. What do you guys think? In my opinion, it was a stronger collection than his SS 12. View the full collection here.

Christopher Kane // I thought Christopher Kane's FW 11 collection was heinous, but I throughly enjoyed his presentation for FW 12. The color range was phenomenal with the show starting with basic blacks and working its way up to blues, dark purples, and strong reds. Floral prints were also present and were definitely my favorite details of the collection besides the large leather pipping. I think Christopher is a genius in mixing London coolness with chic practicality and originality. View the full collection here.

Erdem // Erdem was one of my favorite shows this season in London. Super feminine, fun, and classic. That's what I thought about when watching the ensembles that walked down the runway. It was pure print and color galore, and I saw a lot of red carpet worthy looks. A great collection with a range so vast, it had something appropriate for every woman of any age.

Stella McCartney // Besides her all star cast which included Kate Moss, Shalom Harlow, Stella Tennant and Amber Valletta, Stella brought out a...steller presentation for her FW 12 collection. The designer paired her minimalistic aesthetic with prints, and strong colors like blues and reds, while the tailoring was impeccable and her dresses were sexy, chic, and classic Stella McCartney.

Burberry Prorsum // Burberry's Creative Director, Christopher Bailey continued to focus on elegantly modern outerwear pieces for it's FW 12 season. Using a color palette of olive, plum, dark teal, amber, and soft neutrals, the collection brought out strong yet feminine silhouettes and detailing. The cropped tailored jackets paired with flared skirts and bow belts illustrated a flirty touch to the structural shapes and tough approach. Bailey's emphasis in rich fabrics from silk, wool, velvet, and lace created a balance between cool and chic for the upcoming autumn season, no? Loved it! View the full collection here.
