Kate Middleton’s label of choice Issa London unveiled their autumn/winter 2012 collection yesterday, looking to ancient civilisations for inspiration.
Inspired by a Trans-Siberian journey from Moscow to the Forbidden City in Beijing, the collection is bursting with exotic prints, traditional detailing and free-flowing styles. But Issa’s elegant balance is restored through deep silk maxi dresses and figure-hugging lace numbers, paired with elbow length gloves, offering a demure alternative to the colour heavy tribal prints. It’s nice to see such a mixture, giving Issa London that well needed dose of umph.
View the collection below.
