For the Issa London Autumn/Winter 2011-2012, Brazilian-born designer Daniela Helayel was inspired by the subtle chic of Audrey Hepburn and the controversial, yet ever stylish Wallis Simpson. A celebration of the power of a woman, the collection embraces romance and beauty – from the epic love story of Wallis Simpson and The Duke of Windsor to the iconic moments that shaped Grace Kelly’s glamorous life.

The very first dress from the Issa London archives – a high-necked, long-sleeved piece – provided the stating point for the sleek, polished collection. Heavier jerseys complimented the signature Issa styles, including jacquards with print artwork and dotty wool dresses with a more structured shape. Delicate stripes of embroidery feature on nude tulles and statement dresses are covered in opulent encrusted embellishments. Chic tailoring also features in the collection with stylish cropped jackets, fitted dresses in structured knits and daring draped evening gown in luxurious silk jersey.

It’s back to the archives again for a playful twist on the classic Issa London prints, with elements taken from previous collections that are reversed and over-laid to create the ‘Celebration’ prints. Markings of the Okapi – an African mammal related to the zebra – inspire bold prints for glamorous evening where, while the softer pheasant feather and owl wing prints offer an easy-to-wear version.

So without further ado, we present the Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 collection from Issa London…Enjoy!
