London - Spring/Summer 2007

Danielle Scutt - Single boobed dresses and bathing suits, high hair, and sneering red lips. Punk so-cal.

Noir - Dangerous Sandy-at-the-end-of-"Grease" leggings (or are they super-skinny trousers?). Very tough and hard.

Peter Jensen - The prepster who gets things a little wrong and trashy. I really just like the backdrop on the runway.

Biba - Love the shoes and I have a secret obsession with knickers. Especially blouson-y ones like these. In 2nd grade, I had some blouson-y blue corduroy ones. Sigh.

I think we've discussed my jumpsuit love too.

Slickly vintage.

Gareth Pugh - I will have nightmares over these characters, I'm sure. Seriously cool clothing.

Paul Smith - American sportswear with an English eccentricity. Classic Paul Smith colors, but few prints. I'm dreaming about the shoes.

Preen - Dresses with exaggerated hips and shoulders are probably a bad idea, but the jumpers have the right mix of sexy and sharp and nerdy.

Jonathan Saunders - Sophisticated styles, quirky Prada minimalist prints and color pairings.

Basso & Brooke - Psychedelic flapper dresses, skin-tight gold lamé trouser/leggings.

Aquascutum - Trenches, ho hum, but I'm in love with this print:

Christopher Kane - My first thought was electric neon Hervé Leger derivative. But I pushed through and I am finding myself strangely in love. The dresses look sexy and easy and pretty and fun. The colors, the laces, the chains. This is the first show that really has me excited and dreaming.

Giles - Smart little dresses, some big puffy skirts, sick black bell bottoms. Sort of anti-what-is-expected-for-this-season, but on the whole, totally likeable and wearable. Especially the giant chain prints.

Hamish Morrow - Sharp, futuristic without being minimalist.
