It’s a name that conjures up fantastical images, so while the autumn 12 collection was far from a disappointment, it wasn’t quite an out-of-your-comfort-zone joy. Black and white dominated a collection in which designer Romain Kremer and creative director Nicola Formichetti explored futuristic sportswear in typically luxe fabrics. The distinctly monochrome palette was warmed up by tasteful rich wine and forest green shades, mostly employed in tone-on-tone looks. Collars were a rarity across coats, blazers and bombers meaning interest came from cut, with half-caped jackets, drop shoulders and volume making an unusual statement. Particularly successful were the raglan-sleeve suits, while a cape and lustrous fabrics signalled the showmanship you’d expect under the direction of Lady Gaga collaborator Formichetti.
