This beautiful, feminine, yet playful collection was brought to my attention recently. Maarten van der horst showed his A/W12 collection at LFW in February through Lulu Kennedy's Fashion East, joining the successful ranks of the likes of Johnathan Saunders and Henry Holland. He light-heartedly named the collection the “boardroom, but not boring”, and the “I love you, but fuck you collection”. Adding to his recent success, Horst was also named as one of Selfridges’ Bright Young Things in January along with fellow womenswear designers Sorcha O’Raghallaigh, Adam Andrascik, Alice Lee and MASC.
At the end of next week, Horst will be collaborating with Topshop to produce some tropical, hawaiian printed designs, extremely reminiscent of his S/S12 show. I can't wait until this hits the stores, to see the eccentric, exotic and beautifully tailored designs come to life! Definitely one to watch!
