The Editors get a quick start on SS12 clothes
Zimbio, Telegraph Fashion,
I must admit I have an obsession with fashion insiders wearing clothes from a season ahead. I think it's a bit of a shame sometimes because it loses charm by the time you get to the new season but it's exciting at the same time. These are some of my favourite editors wearing fresh-off-the-runway pieces from the SS12 collections.

If anyone could get a Givenchy skirt the dat after the show that is Carine Roitfeld. Her infamous affiliation to certain maisons was part of the reason that cost her the Vogue Paris job but, of course, she does not care. She looked incredible in a customised version of the layered circular-cut skirts that Tisci showed for the new season. It just looks like that's the way Givenchy is meant to be worn.
Anna Wintour had a similar moment. She wears dresses more than once with no shame (why should she?) but that doesn't mean she can't take advantage of her perks. Anna indulged her world-famous love for Prada by wearing one of Miuccia's SS12 pleated car-printed skirts. I loved this look because the fun print gave her a very cool air, non?

But of course, Anna dello Russo had to be in the list too. Designers know that having her wear one of their pieces is just tons of free press and they take advantage of it. ADR has been the first editor to wear some of the new Mary Katrantzou dresses of under-the-sea motifs, which she accessorised with even more colours. Also in Paris Anna wore the new Linda Farrow for Prabal Gurung sunglasses that had me obsessed. And I loved the rest of her look –the Stella McCartney dress, lacy boots, beanie hat and netting on top. Just ace!
