I’ve seen James Long every season for the last 3 years and every time there is a real evolution of ideas; season by season he refines his ideas into spectacular key pieces that you would kill to own. This year it was quite obvious at LFW that designers were having to rethink their ideas and shift their full attention to selling. I think James got this spot on, and we were left with a S/S 12 collection that had all the excitement of earlier collections but with refinement and total wearability. My eyes were firmly on a plush brown leather jacket in snakeskin print with matching shorts, metallic unravelling knits, a leather foil patchwork jacket and metallic snake print jumpers. Insanely good.
