Love Leroy

Only five days in and already I'm running out of superlatives. Something beyond 'beautiful' or 'exquisite' is called for in describing tonight's show by Véronique Leroy, who received the first roaring ovation I've heard this week for a stunning collection of meticulously fitted linen trousersuits and pretty organza dresses. With their tiny eyelets, crisp Embroidery Anglaise, scissor-sharp chiffon box pleats and wafting bell sleeves, the garments' finishing looked immaculate (already this entire season is being praised for its defiance of high-street copyists). It's just a pity there weren't more press there to witness it.
