Miller sisters’ ultra-cool collection

SIENNA Miller’s collection of stonewash denim, cut-out swimsuits, mini-dresses and playsuits along with House of Holland’s racy lacy neon numbers were the highlights of LFW.

Savannah Miller, a professional fashion designer, launched Twenty8Twelve with her sister, Hollywood actress Sienna, in September 2007. Savannah attended the prestigious Central St Martins College of Art and Design, which counts Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen among its alumni.

This is the sister duo’s second collection for their label after the first received such an enthusiastic reception. With Sienna involved, the tickets were red-hot and Anna Wintour, who’s responsible for publishing the holy grail in fashion, occupied the front row.

The style of the collection is similar to that of these two very stylish blonde London girls. The looks are sexy, skimpy, laid-back, ultra-cool.

Models strutted down the runway to the beat of Iggy Pop’s The Passenger wearing mod-rocker patterned headbands, tiny high-waisted khaki shorts, cut-off denim waistcoats and silk floral print jumpsuits paired with flat black sandals. The looks oozed super-cool.

“London girls are the inspiration behind our latest collection,” said Sienna before she left the venue to catch a flight back to New York where she is currently performing in a play called After Miss Julie.

Henry Holland produced a theatrical true love, fake wedding style fashion show.

“It’s all about what she wears to a wedding; the choices she has got in her wardrobe to wear,” said Henry of his spring/summer 2010 girl.

Four “bridesmaids” wearing skin-tight, all-baring, lace maxi-dresses in different bright colours of juicy tangerine, powerful purple and fuchsia came out followed by the “bride” who wore a similar dress, styled with a bouquet and veil.

His usual entourage lined the front seats: Alexa Chung, Agyness Deyn and Pixie Geldof.
