London: Contemporary fashion has continued to drift further and further away from strict adherance to seasonal codes of sartorial propriety; gone are the days of white being sinful post-Labor Day, boots being seen as impractical in June, and bare legs being covered between September and May. For F/W 12, Kinder Aggugini explored a decidedly lighter side of cold weather dressing in a collection bursting with conversational “Old West” and small-scale botanical prints. A-line mini-skirts (sometimes paired with contrasting print tops, sometimes coordinated with matching blouses or jackets) were a central story in the assortment, and delivered no-fuss solutions for day dressing. On the flip-side, sheer metallic-lace layered over seductive camisole slips cast a more sensual tone on standout cocktail and evening options. —Kibwe Chase-Marshall
