LONDON…Always a reliable source for flirty, young and yet directional fashion, Luella Bartley is one of London’a favorite daughters, energizing the fashion scene with a consistently healthy and optimistic take on fashion.  S/S 09 was directly in line with this philosophy, combining elements of collegiate designs which made her name, as well as ladylike tweeds, brocade and liberty floral. Abbreviated lengths, slim trouser silhouettes and lots of ruffles kept much of the collection in juniors territory, accessorized with punchy pastel heels, tangles of oversize pearls and hair bows. Look to Luella not only for key pieces, but for a summarizing mood, a bright and uplifting departure from the witch-y direction of her previous season.
