London Fashion Week, Spring 2008: Luella

When Luella Bartley came back to London earlier this week after showing the past few seasons in New York, she wasn't the only one to make a return. Batman also made an appearance. Trousers with Batman motifs, old school Batman and Robin masks, and mini capes all adorned models on the Luella runway.

The collection was inspired by Thora Birch's geeky shabby chic character in Ghost World - the second collection in a row where Luella has tossed around the geek chic theme. And as geeky as Luella tries to be, she always manages to churn out oodles of covetable feminine dresses - dresses that cool girls want to wear. Whenever I see her new collection, all I can think is: "I want to be a Luella girl." And as long as she incites that kind of reaction, she is good to go.

i like the black shoes & the ones paired with the yellow dress. I do like the theme of it though. Very creative.

This looks way more fun and playful than Luella's been in a long time! Whe I saw the pic's I would've guessed it was Alice McCall or Karen Walker maybe. I loved Luella's first(?) collection with all the neon and the spray paint, but she got a bit bland when she hit New York. Trying to be more commercial I guess. Anyway, looks like returning to London has put the spring back in her step... gonna go check out the full collection now!
