LFW S/S 2012 – Basso and Brooke

Basso Brooke SS12
Spring/Summer 2012 took no vacation from Basso and Brooke‘s defining colour exuberance. While I never fully believe that Bruno Basso and Chris Brooke can top their previous season, they always manage to do so. This season, they used every colour of the rainbow; tropical yellows, greens and blue merged with taupes and mustards in awe-inspiring digital prints. These are the type of special pieces that street style photographers will chase to snap.

Taking note of style rules, accessories were very minimal against the chaotic designs, barring statement chain necklaces and bracelets. Brooke – the brains behind the cutting of each garment – had an an applause-worthy hand in making the diaphonous motifs appear polished and sophisticated. Maximalist meets minimalist.
