LFW A/W 13 - 14 Day 1 brilliant Belle Sauvage








Fabulous print design inspired by the golden maned head of the 'Birth of Venus'...








Right on trend the red cape finishes off the look perfectly


My favourite dress in the Belle Sauvage collection.






A powerful and cool collection with a rich and compelling colour palette in print and sumptuous fabric texture combinations 

Virginia Ferreira and Chris Neuman of Belle Sauvage



Belle Sauvage

I have been aware of Virginia Ferreira and Chris Neuman of Belle Sauvage for a few seasons now. The Belle Sauvage brand was launched in 2008 by this talented Italian Brit combination.
They define their market as aimed at high design boutiques and concept stores.....
Tapping into the print trend which has been very influential across the international fashion trend scape for a few seasons serves them well. 
The Freemasons Hall in Great Queen Street was the venue again for this popular design duo to show case their new seasons Autumn Winter 2013 - 14 offering. 
Stand out pieces were the Kaleidoscope baroque computer generated print dresses. Worthy of Prada the Renaissance inspired Birth of Venus repeat pattern signature print on an 'all in one' body suit was inspirational.... 
I loved the edgy street style elements of the collection such as the hooded jackets... this hip hop street style would look amazing worn by Jessie J.
Fans of this label have included Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kelly Osbourne and The Ting Tings. 
The colour palette ranges from blacks, dark reds, rich purples and magenta with accents of silver, gold and white in printed heavy crepes, wool, taffetas and woven jacquards. Tailored pieces such as pencil skirts, blazers, A-line dresses with high collars and shirt dresses highlight on separates. Scarves also feature in every season. Voluptuous tunic dresses, fur collars and lace and leather trims add a sumptuous addition to the garments. 
The Belle Sauvage catwalk models looked brilliant, their hair in tight off the face swinging sashaying pony tails and bristling fringes were just the right styling touch to elevate this collection into one to take note of....
