"I was in the Louvre and I saw a Botticelli fresco," explains Allegra Hicks when I ask about her Spring '08 collection. "I got very, very inspired, so I got a Botticelli book and found what I needed. I looked at the painting called Primavera and got everything I wanted - beautiful fabrics, a girl that is feminine but strong, and clothing that tells a story - like the print on that dress looks like you are walking through the woods." The models' hair and makeup reflected that idea with curled and snarled tendrils, but we though the actual clothes looked better suited for a society luncheon than a forest, with slimly flattering gowns and floaty fabrics meant to snag attention and addresses, not tree branches. The front row backed up our idea: Sophie Fiennes, India Hicks, Rufus and Sally Albermarle, and Lulu Guinness all posed for Tatler before the show. But we love the idea of Botticelli infused in any style, and we're sure Allegra does too, since she looks exactly like one of the women in his paintings. "When I was young, people used to tell me that all the time!" She admitted. Try on one of the new dresses and see if it happens to you.
