Camilla's spring/summer collection titled Gypset took the audience on a wild ride through different cultures that the collection captured. It began in Australia with Jemma Baines opening the show sporting a boomerang around her neck and an enormous outback hat to finish her 'Aussie' look.
From The outback emerged a signature Camilla kaftan in a print that reminded me of a beautiful rainbow lorikeet. This was one unmissable bird of the show.
After Australia, Gypset took us to a new land with more structured prints in mandarin and blue tones. Straped to the backs of models were the beautifully patterned cushions. It was interesting to see how they took the styling further from not only incorporating feathers in their hair, or multiple chains around their neck but also things like strapping a fashion to their back to express the journey that the Gypset girl has gone on and to where the collection is taking us.
And from the cushions came even cooler kinds of back-strapping accessories.
What would a round the world trip be if we didnt't stop for an Afrian safari? Her references in the animal prints and brightly coloured beaded accessories were just enough to give that tribal feel without going over board.
To finish this wondrous Collection of prints, colour and kaftans Camilla finished off with a geisha inspired feel which I would have to say was my favorite part of the show and no, not because I am Asian or anything like that. I think this was the part where although Camilla has set thang - kaftans - she was able to develop her silhouettes and prints a little further from what everyone is used to seeing.
