It breaks my heart to know that fashion week is almost over. New York, London and Milan have blown us away with their riveting collections. Fashion week in Paris is the last stop and it starts tomorrow, but before we move on to that I would love to share some of our favorite street style looks from London during fashion week. This year it seemed each show-goer, fashion icon and model were all about one thing: the jacket. From ankle length coats to leather and plaid patterns, this year the jacket was the main accessory. I have to say I’m getting a little excited about winter coming, I might have to dust off my coats a little earlier this year.
Fashion week this year was amazing, even though I say that everytime, I really mean it this time. Spring 2012 still has beautiful bright neons in its future! There will still be full skirts with beautiful tops, ikat patterns, lace, fringe and suprisingly nailheads. Scroll down to view highlights from New York and London Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Week! Paris and Milan to come.

Burberry’s Fall collection was named after the proto-supermodel Jean Shrimpton, based around her look in the early sixties. The collection was just beautiful with its bold colors, tulip-skirted dresses, mod sweaters and pants. But Burberry’s real success was the coats, the beautiful trim coats in various colors, textures and hints of mink, fur, closures and buttons. Mathew Williamson’s collection was inspired by Francisco Infante-Arana, the Russian artist. The collection had an array of bright colors, and interesting patterns, fringe, beading and fur trim details. Antonio Berardi’s collection was full of stacked pleats bullion beaded sleeves, hints of lace, beautifully made beaded dresses on sheer fabric, and my favorite cashmere coat with a fox top and a trim of sheared mink, just gorgeous. Sass & Bide Fall collection was based around different cultures and different textures, an urban warrior like woman. The collection included rich and electric shades of magenta, fuchsia, coral and tie-dye colors. My favorite piece was the yellow coat with hints of beading. Roksanda Ilincic’s Fall collection was in inspired by exotic birds, which makes sense that she would use bright vivid colors. The collection included wool tunics, tuxedo-striped trousers, and satin gowns. Some of my favorite looks was the separate tops and skirts pulled together by a contrast ribbon belt.
