Luella Bartley launched a collection inspired by school uniforms, a little military, and with a British punk touch. Although it is not so remarkable as the collection for spring-summer 2009, which is outstanding and charming, this new collection has really nice details like the particular zippers (or zip fasteners) with beautiful shapes, and sheer fabrics mixed with other fabrics to create a great effect.
It is very probable we will see the English It-girls wearing these garments soon. English It-girls include Alexa Chung, Daisy Lowe, or the Geldof sisters (the younger of them paraded in a Luella collection). It is very likely we will see them wearing some of the tweed, classic-cut coats or Prince of Wales checked coats (true British spirit), or maybe some of them will prefer the lovely mini dresses that were shown at the London Fashion Week.
Other memorable looks from the collection are the velvet jacket with tailored pants, the trench in shades of red with a sort of blue leggings and lovely patterned cardigan with a classic checked pencil skirt that has zippers that adorn it.
Crystal-bedecked gold stockings are part of many looks of the collection. They add an irreverent and elegant touch in a punk style for the most preppy looks.
