Preen at London Fashion Week

The London Fashion week whirlwind kicked off bright and early this morning with a visit to the Preen presentation at the St Martins Lane Hotel. A perfectly pitched selection of Pantone pixelation over baroque curlicue motifs was the order of things, with gorgeous fabrics and a streamlined and grown-up silhouette keeping the saccharine of a distinctly sweet pastel palette at bay.
