Paris Fashion Week SS12 - Charlie Le Mindu

Last season Charlie Le Mindu shocked London with a naked blood splattered model wearing just a hat and although it gained a huge amount of press the rest of the collection paled in comparison to this statement.

Now however, Charlie has created a dynamic collection of evening wear pieces and was showing in Paris today, front row waiting to be wowed was Pam Hogg and Diane Pernet as well as various other fashion faces.

The collection was a mixture of sheer fabrics, fetishwear, hair extensions as garments and a prominent egyption theme, with men wearing low slung maxi skirts and sporting eyeliner.

Fish tail dresses with sweeping trains left us in no doubt that this collection was to die for while the flashes of skin, structuring and gravity defying bejewelled head dresses reminded us that we were indeed watching an avante gard show by Charlie Le Mindu.

The Finale outfit was worn by Rossy de Palmer, who has previously been named muse by the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier and Thierry Muggler. The kneed length cocktail dress featured an on trend mixed length hem, spangled, embellished cups, leading to an embellished choker and topped with a huge sparkling snake, huge amounts of black hair sprouting from the head and looking every inch the modern princess!
Similar to the collection shown by Giles this season in London mixing glamour with oversized head dresses and princess like evening wear.
