Dion Lee SS12 Line II

You're probably thinking it's a bit late to be showing you SS12 collections but if you're over the other side of the world, SS12 is only just beginning.

Australian designer and winner of the International Woolmark Prize Dion Lee has just dropped his diffusion collection, Line II, which launches in Australian stores today.

Lee has been showing for years now at Australian Fashion Week but he didn't drop on my radar until more recently - specifically at London Fashion Week back in February where he showed a catwalk installation of wispy materials juxtaposed against strong structures and bold hues of red.

This collection is a little more sports luxe, competing slouchy silhouettes against tailored two-pieces with a lot less fuss and more fluidity than previous collections.

The collection is versatile and open for some severe clashing; picture the tracksuit bottoms teamed with some pointy Jimmy Choo's - I couldn't pull it off but there certainly are people who can.

I'm still trying to work out how to try and get my hands on some for next summer or whether I've missed the boat entirely. Getting your head around seasons and the relevant collection dropping at different times around the world is more confusing for me than it probably should be.
