Spring Summer 2010 sees global fashion brand, Uttam London, combine modern prints with intricate handcrafted detailing to create a distinctive style, free-spirited, confident and individual. Showcasing three Key themes as focus throughout the entire collection; Vintage Romanticism, Nature and Retro Brights.
The in-house designed prints of bold abstract flowers and delicate butterflies work with proportion and scale to create an eclectic style, all united with the Uttam London signature attention to detail.
The 1920’s & 1930’s provide the foundation of creativity for the first trend; combined with contemporary fabrics, finishes and styling these decadent designs offer glamour and decadence through full length column gowns and vintage style detailing. Re-interpreted and re-worked scale and proportion create a truly modern take on this stylish era for a new generation.
Nature is a constant source of inspiration and this Spring Summer channels a plethora of flora, fauna and wildlife to stunning effects. Foliage and ornate birds adorn cotton tea dresses whilst hand crafted embellishment provide added interest and evoke a crafted from nature appeal.
Concluding the stories is the ‘Abstract Retro’ collection which combines 1960’s inspired silhouettes with bold, bright and abstract graphic prints. Volume plays an integral role, A-line designs are updated with the addition of pleats and panels whilst buckles and daring embroidery make for a modern statement look.
Uttam London Head of Design Justine Lee comments,
“From vintage styles to exciting new graphic prints, Spring/Summer is about experimenting and creating a definite look. Delicate to bold; prints and colour are key, be brave with both to discover a new individuality.”
