LFW SS13: Charlie May

Gathering in the rather salubrious surroundings of the Stafford Hotel’s wine cellars for the lovely Charlie May’s catwalk presentation was an absolute delight. Unadorned with the usual pretentious clipboard-wielders at the door or complex stickered-ticket arrangements, the assembled guests were merrily chatting away as we took our seats for what turned out to be a masterclass in effortless chic. Charlie’s designs have always troped around a Scandinavian-inspired idea of clean cutting and neutral colour palettes. While this season saw the introduction of an ice-blue velvet, Charlie’s designs again told a tale of perfect, versatile, sexy neutral separates. Fabric textures complimented and contrasted on each look, while sharp darts and pleats cut through any perceived softness. With each season, Charlie’s confidence in her design language is rightfully boosted, and for me this was a watershed collection – her talent and direction has graduated and blossomed from One to Watch into One to Wear.
