Introducing the butter LONDON Autumn/ Winter 2011 Collection. Straight from the Autumn/ Winter 2011 catwalks of New York and London Fashion Week, butter LONDON brings to market lacquer shades so new, they’ve been hand blended in between shows by our Founding Creative Director and colour trend expert Nonie Creme. Nonie says, “My mixes this season reflect the “luxe-grunge” moment, and burst of new era, ‘dirty’ jewel tones prevalent on the catwalk for A/W 2011.” Imagine taking a traditional jewel tone palette, then moving each shade about two notes to the left. This means a garnet instead of a ruby, a dirty teal instead of a sapphire, and an olive or patina gold instead of a brassy or yellow tone, as best captured at shows like Alexander Wang, Yigal Azrouel, Betsey Johnson, and even hidden inside fingerbands at Vena Cava. Our bespoke colours this season include Knees Up, Wallis, Bluey, Toff, & No More Waity, Katie.Toff - A darker, dustier, brownish variation on a rose pink. Stop to smell them. The roses, not the toffs.
Wallis - A tarnished, metallic olive gold, as mysterious and regal as its namesake.
Bluey - A slightly metallic dark peacock blue, perfect for fashionable birds.
No More Waity, Katie - A soft, elegant greige shade with a splash of lilac glitter is the perfect marriage to combine fashion and fun.
Knees Up - A smashing metallic red perfect for getting smashed in.
