Daks at London Fashion Week

A 9am call for the Daks show at Somerset House this morning, with bleary eyes abated by a bright and breezy collection - no post-modern ultra-conceptual quagmire to trawl through here. With key strands of maritime chic and a plastic overlay treatment of the house's signature check, the collection used appealing fabrics (silk, seersucker and cotton) and a flattering 50s/Claire McCardell silhouette in a solid start to the day.
