Yesterday was the BT2 spring/summer 2012 show. It was the first one that they have had in five years so there was a lot of excitement about it. There were a lot of neon colours and quite a few summer tweeds which were seen throughout the show. There were lots of dresses and tops paired with trousers, but there weren’t many shorts as I would have expected for spring/summer.

I really liked this look by Acne. The colour of the shirt is really bright and summery and it could be very versatile.

I loved the movement of this dress and the swinging of the fabric at the end. The colours are really strong and it’s a classic type of dress that would never go out of fashion.

One of the main attractions of the event was the launch of Karl Lagerfeld’s new label ‘KARL’, as BT2 is the exclusive retailer in Ireland. There were four looks featured which ended the show. There were a lot of sequins and I really liked the attention to detail; on the collars there was a faded slogan printed.

Rosemary’s note: The show was a really great, wearable and playful take on S/S trends as evidenced by the labels available at BT2. I was a particular fan of the DKNY offerings, as well as IRO‘s gorgeous red leather bomber (swoon!) and Selected Femme‘s great casual-cool prints. My picks below!
