(LONDON) Betty Jackson
Betty Jackson’s S/S 2010 collection was like a breath of fresh optimism with beautifully made up models frollicking in pretty floral prints. There were the requisite ruffles around necks and lace trim peeking out of dresses. Everything was decked out in dainty bow details, resulting in light, fresh looks destined for the English countryside. And was that a shoulder pad we spotted?

The Qasimi show is always full of surprises. Last season, the all-black collection was virtually couture, with dresses made entirely of feathers and extravagant headpieces modelled by the likes of Jasmine Guinness, Yasmin Le Bon, Jade Parfitt and Erin O’Connor. This season, they were inspired by Byzantium and their collection was flooded with colour: rich reds, turquoise and especially gold. Embellishment dripped off of everything, and was particularly successful on their little caped cropped jackets.

Adidas by Stella McCartney
Stella sadly didn’t make an appearance at the Adidas presentation on Sunday, but her newfound love of fitness certainly did with fashion-forward designs for every activity. This season, she launches triathlon and cycling clothes for the first time. She also takes the motif of the zebra, which appears as stripes on running sneakers, T-shirts and leggings. It also appears as a subtle mesh stripe in a jacquard top in her new yoga collection, which is all dusky pinks and oatmeal and grey tones. Stella’s also made a jegging for spring – the leggings that look like jeans – so those who are fans of the style should sleep easy.
