Paul Costelloe SS12 LFW Day 1

This season of Paul Costelloe for women sees a range where his signatures blend with elements of 1960's parisian chic. The women's collection sees a strong feminine silhouette yet skater skirts and corseted waists give it a sexy edge. The neutral palette of cappuccino and flowing fabrics create such an elegant and easy collection. However the puff sleeves, high neck ruffle collars and accents of coral, pink and green take it from effortless to luxurious and understated glamour. 

The Men's collection is a collaboration of the Edwardian era along with New Romantics and a nod to the seventies, through a neutral palette, along with indigos and highlights of coral, pink and green. Linen acts as a key character in emphasising the romanticism through its light weight nature and draping. Ruffles and pleats work as accents to the constructed tailoring along with either slim or large fluid trousers.

Paul costelloe man launches the Costelloe catwalk pop up at John Lewis, oxford street today where exclusive garments from the aw/11 collection are available for 2 weeks only.
