Caroline Charles
London Fashion Week - spring/summer 2011

Mad Men fever has infiltrated almost every creative studio in fashion and Caroline Charles is no exception. The spring/summer collection wouldn't have looked out of place on the catwalk fifty years ago but that is no criticism.

Pretty prints and lady-like shapes dominated, wonderfully finished with hats and 3/4 length gloves. There's something very appealing about smart summer hats and gloves - this is a trend I'd love to see filter down.

Demure skirt lengths and high waistlines gave the collection a grown up feel. Sex might sell but it seems Caroline Charles is bored of it, giving us just a glimpse of thigh through a full, sheer, ruffled skirt. Her collection was very prim and proper and all the better for it.

Wearable, ladylike and fun.
