Prints Charming.

With Chanel setting a pretty strong tone at the start (I freaked out about it here), it has to be said that designers have really brought their 'A' games to Pre-Fall 2012. Two collections that I have previously never spent much time thinking about, Just Cavalli and Matthew Williamson, both really took me by surprise.  Both known for using prints, I always have it in my head, potentially for good reason, that they always go a bit too far and make very expensive clothes look very cheap.  But I am happy to report that, for now at least, I am eating my words.  I am kinda loving what both design houses delivered.
