South African born designer Jacob Kimmie presented his very sheer SS2012 'Rhapsody' collection at Vauxhall Fashion Scout today. Think conservative silhouettes with x-ray vision. Long sheer skirts with high collared tops were seen with ruffle detailing and styled with chunky suede heels tied in a bow and diamond crucifix necklaces. Mesh paneling also made an appearance. Black & cream dominated the show with a touch of red in the inverse floral print flowing finale. Some models were veiled in more sheer fabric while others carried bird cages down the catwalk - all with heavy black eye shadow. These clothes are definitely for a woman who wants to stay covered up but is simultaneously not afraid of flashing a bit of flesh.
