With the London Olympics on the horizon who better to celebrate with than our very own Dame Vivienne and her long-time partner and head of the MAN team, Andreas Kronthaler. The gentlemanly sportsman was the inspiration and this was a collection that provided not only what you wear for the sport bit also the more formal ceremonies. Models pounded the catwalk dripping with sweat, accessorised with laurel wreaths. Red knee high socks triple jump style with a matching red shoe was a personal favourite. This was a fun collection but also extremely wearable, the perfect warm-up for what we hope will be a wonderful 2012.
