Clements Ribeiro autumn/winter 2011 at London Fashion Week
There are occasions at Fashion Week when the clothes are so beautiful, so totally right that you almost have to be forcibly restrained from jumping onto the catwalk and removing them from the models. (Well I do, at least!) The Clements Ribeiro collection for autumn/winter 2011/12 was just such a show. The mix of heraldic embroidery, military detail, leopard-print and patterns which morphed from plain to extravagant in a swish of silk or bricade, was perfectly judged and an exhilarating reminder of just why we love the eccentric-chic of Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro.
