Spring Summer 2011 Collection part one

Astonishingly simple shapes have emerged from a combination of bewilderingly elegant cutting and truly sensational cloth. Absolutely determined to apply a lightness of touch to construction, designer Nicola Helgesen has utilized natural materials engineered into modern deconstructed fabrics, the uniqueness of which encourages a stripped down approach to design.

This quintessential La Petite S***** collection is divided into 2 parts, both have benefited from a subtle tonal colour palette of duck egg, black chocolate, dappled coal, chalk white and mushroom punctuated with a shot of vivid red.

‘Part one’

Deceptively stretchy Italian silks, scrunch and ripple with woven metal in abstract reptilian print and a mix and match pallet of plains. It is the basis for a range of low maintenance, light summer separates appealing to the modern woman. Accessible pull on dresses, drawstring skirts and soft tailoring combine to create a standalone capsule collection.
