Spring-Summer 2012 – The devilish silhouette from last season has been vanquished, and it seemed we had all stepped into a new dimension described as a world of “polly pocket”. Shoulders were extravagantly ruffled, as were the leathered shoes. The spectacle of Viktor & Rolf was here. The oversized clothing on the tiny models displayed the disproportionate world. Tiered A-line skirts were frilled and held together by huge blanket stitching and teamed with tiny bra like tops. Pale peach and pink fitted dresses were emblazoned with black mesh baroque swirls cut out of them.  The coat, perhaps the pinnacle of the theme, was extravagant in all manners of the word, with large ruffled detailing, and thick exaggerated stitching up the entire sleeve to the collar.  The finale of tiered party dresses were smothered in jewels and finished with a flurry of flamenco ripples. As always, it was another over the top spectacle.
