Clever Couture: Holly Fulton from catwalk to high street
Published 08/04/2011 | 05:00
As much as we are loving the sober sophistication of Celine right now, it's crucial to remember that fashion is also about dressing up and indulging in transient love affairs.
Holly Fulton does not design with a shrinking violet in mind. She excels at a bold use of texture and pattern. Tribal jewellery, cityscape prints and full-on raffia fringing ensure her Spring / Summer collection is a visual feast.
You may not want to invest in expensive wacky pieces but why not take inspiration from the nuttiness and experiment affordably on the hight street.
This gold and black printed box jacket complete with rhinestone collar is part of H&M's Glamour Collection. It's a gem of a piece and guaranteed to gain plenty of envious glances. It would happily sit atop a simple LBD but where's the fun in that?
Team with a tulle tutu and asymmetric platforms to pack a real punch.
