Hermione De Paula - LFW A/W 12-13

 This young up and coming designer fresh from Central St Martins, completely took my breath away with her exquisite S/S 12 collection, entitled 'Darlingtonia's Obsession'. The collection was inspired by nature, sensuality, tropical plants and exotic gardens. At first glance the prints appear to reflect floral patterns, but upon looking deeper, you may see a bird or monkey entwined in gardens of greenery. A very mysterious and fascinating concept which has lead to the most beautiful and intricate deatailed designs I have come across in a long time!
The whole collection was made up of lustrous silks, flirty feathers, beading and giant iridescent sequins!

This was one of my favourite pieces from the collection




This dress is simply stunning!
Love this!
I really love the juxtaposition of the delicate floral silk with the rougher, harder snake print leather collar!
Matching hats with even more sequins and feathers!
