London Fashion Week! - Day 3

This morning was full on with the Mulberry salon show. The brand has won over the hearts worldwide with its luxury bags combining stylish design with the finest leathers.  

The first row included the American actress Kristen Stewart, the singer Eliza Doolittle, the supermodel Kate Moss and the American socialite Olivia Palermo.

Other impressive show was Richard Nicoll's, who was inspired by "l'Enfer" the unfinished masterpiece of the French film director, screenwriter and producer Henri-Georges Clouzot.

The film examines the sexual jealousy of a man towards his flirtatious wife, whose psychological state deforms everything with desire.

Nicoll's collection was ethereal with sky-blue and soft pink, alluding to an ancient feminine grace, undefined and full of subtleties.

But it was definitely for today's woman, modernised by PVC and metallic laces matched by wonderful Manolo Blahnik shoes.

And on to another Spring Summer 2012 collection... You know Holly Fulton is making money when you see Marigay McKee, Harrod's  Fashion and Beauty Director, attending the show. 

We love her graphic Art Deco prints, this season with a much more sophisticated vibe. If you go to Miami this year, there are a few knock-out party dresses to choose from.

But the most eagerly awaited and super exclusive show this London Fashion Week was undoubtedly Tom Ford's. The celebrity stylist turned designer Rachel Zoe wrote on twitter "there are no words for his genius."

The man who thrilled us at Gucci and YSL continues to have the fashion world at his feet.

His first own label collection was a major success and this one is no exception, his obsessive attention to details, his talent to know how to make a woman feel fantastic and his inner sense of sophistication keep us all mesmerised.

The Turbine Hall at Tate Modern was the amazing venue chosen by Matthew Wiliamson for his Spring Summer 2012 show with Japanese-inspired prints, draped in jewel-toned silks. You can already picture yourself far away in an exotic summer destination!

And tomorrow it's time for Burberry Prorsum! I'll keep you posted!
