    I'll be the one with the pink, white and red carnations...

    Kicking off the final day (for the ladies at least) of London's Spring/Summer 2012 offerings, this morning saw Mary Katrantzou's prints of montaged flower and Jeff Koons ribbons applied to asymetric layering and draped structure against this carnation-bedecked catwalk.

    The swansong finale at Giles

    Inspired by Warhol, Beaton and Nudie, the Royal Courts of Justice this evening hosted the Giles collection, all set to a backdrop that some readers may recognise from Mr Deacon's recent residence at Bruton Place. Developing the silver Nudie theme, Deacon applied silver fringing to leather shifts alongside their intricate lasercut counterparts with a number of monumental swan headpieces and maribou-trimmed showstoppers completing the supermodel-heavy extravaganza.

    Todd Lynn at London Fashion Week

    In a three-chord composition of gunmetal grey, cobalt blue and black, Todd Lynn presented his womens' and mens' collection this afternoon at Somerset House with angular tailoring and layering of panels woven amongst each other. Particularly covetable were matching leather hi-tops for the boys courtesy of a Christian Louboutin collaboration.

    Louise Gray at London Fashion Week

    Louise Gray's super colourful collections awlays brighten up the most intense schedule and dismal weather and her Spring/Summer 2012 collection was no different. With a more refined and luxe approach enriching her patch and play aesthetic, standouts were the Piet Mondrian meets Saturday morning kids TV cardigans and trembling 3D flower embroideries.

    Michael van der Ham at London Fashion Week

    In the Topshop venue previously used as the Eurostar terminal, Michael van der Ham showed a collection supposedly inspired by the photographs of Joseph Szabo and his brand of laid-back West Coast cool. A bricolage of prints and colours in the interplay of layers that van der Ham is known for, the look was bound together by pleated bands of silk chiffon placed and draped about the shoulder, waist and hip.

    Christopher Kane at London Fashion Week

    Shown in a similarly fururistic hall to Jonathan Saunders' Saturday presentation, we also saw brocade and damask appear at Christopher Kane alongside a selection of 21st century florals in reflective hi-vis silver and appliquéd plastic collage. Body-geometry was another key aspect with white shirts and dresses featuring an armadillo-like use of panelling and many heavily encrusted with Swarovski crystals.

    Antonio Berardi at London Fashion Week

    An ethereal and armorial collection from Antonio Berardi this morning with pastel patent leather panels on razor tailoring meeting with flowing A-line dresses. More intricate heavily embroidered panels here too on a series of exquisite bias-cut silk fishtail gowns in eau-de-nil, primary red, burgundy, nude and black.

    Matthew Williamson at London Fashion Week

    Set in the Tate Modern's gigantic Turbine Hall, Matthew Williamson's S/S 2012 show saw his classic slick hippy tighten up just a little with a series of loosely tailored jackets in copper, salmon and classic bouclé shrugged over dresses that featured a watered-silk effect laid over florals and baroque damask prints giving them an ikat feel.

    Fred Butler at London Fashion Week

    Set to a soundtrack by friend and collaborator Patrick Wolf, the Portico Rooms at Somerset House housed Fred Butler's latest collection: a characteristically colourful affair, with models landing on psychadelic lilypads in an array of rainbow harspichord sleeves, bionic ruffles and polygon glasses.

    Markus Lupfer at London Fashion Week

    Inspired by Hawaii and associated tropics, Markus Lupfer today showed his Spring/Summer 2012 collection on a prosthetically-enhanced menagerie of elephants, baboons and zebras with a zoological theme continuing in his collection of cashmere, cotton and denim separates featuring sequinned flora and faunae.

    Nicole Farhi at London Fashion Week

    Showing at the Royal Horticultural Society and aptly inspired by a visit to a botancial garden in New Delhi, Nicole Farhi showed a selection of Tord de Boontje-esque laser-cut leather and sack-back shifts alongside a number of pieces in a floral mosaic print.

    Jonathan Saunders at London Fashion Week

    A crossing over London through the drizzle to Paddington was rewarded with the chromatic version of a jaunt to Capri and Jonathan Saunders' Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Aside of one powerful black look, serving to drive home the impact of the fer forgé embroideries on a number of less starkly-hued dresses, Saunders again showed how no other designer gives colour to fabric in quite the same way.
