Spring Forward - A Longing Look at London Fashion Week

It's no surprise that Fashion Week had a liberal covering of bright colours and this spring we also have the return of neons.  An injection of colour is what is needed after the cold dull winter, reminding us of the brighter season ahead.  Neon is going to take alot of confidence to wear and may be best started with the odd accessory before attempting a full ensemble but as much as we will at first reject it, no doubt we will all be wearing it in some form or other by the end of summer.

Once this has filtered onto the High Street no doubt it will be more wearable - I'm hoping!

Burberry Prorsum show us how to do it using brights as an addition to some amazing jackets - I can't wait to see how these will be interpretated on the High Street.  Biker jackets are a favourite of mine and these are just gorgeous.  Their designer, Christoper Bailey, has excelled himself.  Check out here to see what's available now.
