Lako Bukia: London Fashion Week A/W 2012 Catwalk Review

Georgian designer Lako Bukia presented her new A/W 2012 collection Broken Mirrors at Fashion Scout on Monday 20th February 2012.

Lako Bukia A/W 2012 by Love Amelia.

This season Lako Bukia went all futuristic for Broken Mirrors in shades of silver and black, a collection that was inspired by her Georgian heritage once again, and a traditional fear of looking into shattered glass. In contrast to last season's floaty print focused offering, this saw a return to more structured tailoring and a harder line - enhanced by the styling of Claudia Behnke, which featured severe metal top knots and an extremely strong flattened black brow. This is something we've seen a lot of on the catwalks this season: Desperate Scousewives, you have a lot to answer to.
