Award winning Scottish womenswear designer Holly Fulton has never been one to shy away from colour and prints and her Spring Summer 2013 collection is no exception with rich colours and patterns in tactile fabrics bursting from the catwalk show. Parading in rows of four at the opening of the show, models adorned in oversize floral embellishments and the sugariest shades of candy pink and turquoise epitomized 1950’s Americana with a lashing of 1960s cheek. The collection is arguably one of Holly Fulton's most laid back and therefore wearable collections yet. With Vogue editor Alex Shulman referring to Fultons past collections as ‘beautiful pieces of art’ the latest offering of easy separates has an overall more relaxed aesthetic.
Day dresses, printed cropped trousers, floral embroidered macs, raffia skirts and tailored fifties style jackets, T-Shirt dresses and sweatshirts all entwined with a flurry of climbing rose motifs, applique embroidery and sequins. The collection was a carefully crafted combination of the delicate and the robust with lightweight silks, leathers, heavy duty plastics and basket weaves. Bold print infusions of stripes, checks and mosaic tiles offered the undeniable Holly Fulton stamp, reminding the audience who is the master of print and embellishment in women’s fashion. In conclusion Holly Fultons latest offering is innovative, impossibly fun and utterly wearable.
