Sally-Ann Provan Spring / Summer 2011 Collection
For her second season at London Fashion Week in September 2010, Sally-Ann Provan’s Spring Summer 2011 collection is complemented with a capsule collection of handbags and clutches which are garnished with semi precious stones. Her continuing experimentation with pleating has informed the wearable sculptural forms of her headwear which are trimmed with leather bows and tassels. The collection was inspired by 1970’s Bond Girls, magpies, Victorian bird cages and the longed for free flight of their inhabitants.
