Since some of the best eye-catching ideas we saw at London Fashion Week for Spring 2012 may have been easy to miss at first glance, we wanted to look back and focus on the most surprising, clever and inspiring details that caught our attention.
Christopher Kane(and above)
In a season full of flower power, Christopher Kane’s playful alternative featuring printed cut-out collage patches makes for one of the wittiest takes we’ve seen for such a femme motif.

Cut-outs with a baroque inetensity were made ultra modern via an urbane scuba silhouette and maximal color way for a graphic, beautifully made statement.
Ombre color treated hair, a look we’ve been spotting on all the cool girls around town as of late topped off another winning, ultra-hip street smart collection from Acne.
A romantic high/low dress paired with decadently constructed gem encrusted pants and updated strappy patent mary-janes made a glamorous case for tough girl chic. -Naveed Hussain
