Emma Cook - London Spring 2009
(LONDON) Cook's Spring 2009 collection, "Susie Soleil," featured graphic-print dresses and chiffon tees in a palette of mostly grey, black, white, khaki and coral before turning pink, purple and iridescent for night. A pencil skirt was sexed up with a zipper that unfurled all the way down the back, while ruffled hems and fringe accessorized dresses. In an apparent anticipation of London's frequent showers, Cook also showed variations on the clear plastic raincoat: It came as a jacket and a poncho, embellished with black piping or rhinestones.
