Amanda Wakelely's starting point for the SS12 collection came from Lady Slim Keith, a New York socialite and fashion icon in the '50s who graced best dressed lists and was used by Truman Capote as the inspiration for Lady Coolbirth in his unfinished Answered Prayers.

"A talent for individuality, she was unique without any pretence," Wakeley explained. The resulting collection showed elegant draped dresses, grecian styles and plenty of contemporary glamour in slinky navy.
