Spot the difference #2

Earlier in the week I reported on the serious love in the great British High Street is having with young Brit designers at the moment.

It seems like every brand has drawn on the catwalk this season far more than usual for inspiration from Primark's Prada knock off prints to River Island's House of Holland mash up.

This time i decided to take a look at David Koma's S/S 12 line and retailer Miss Selfridge's spin on it.

Though not strictly British, Koma studied both his BA and MA at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design before being sponsored by Newgen and Topshop. His S/S 12 collection was a delightful meld of geometric, Aztec patterns in black, white, yellow and pink hues with some futuristic metallic and sheer panelling thrown into the mix that caught the imagination of press and buyers alike.

Miss Selfridge takes on the directional look with an array of body con dresses with either colour blocked or sheer panels. Meanwhile similar patterns emerge across jersey dresses and leggings, whilst sheer panels become at once both sporty and sexy.
