Oh so 60′s! I felt like I traveled back in time to the 60′s as the models strutted down the runway with their long hippie locks paletted in Holly Fulton’s highlighter looks. Holly Fulton has become one of my most anticipated shows for London Fashion Week. Her reoccurring signature Art Deco prints have made me yearn […]
Mathew Williamson’s S/S 2012 presented his usual ultra feminine silky printed looks but those were not the hero pieces for me. I fell really partial to the more embellished looks, which have always been his strength as well. The intricacy of the cut-out pattern paired with feather details made those dresses real showpieces. The concept […]
Despite her more experimental construction techniques and unconventional use of organza Ann-Sofie Back’s S/S 2012 retained a sophisticated simplicity that easy to absorb. The collection was all very wearable. In some of the looks she took what seemed to be very simple patterns and used shoe string belts to gather or create closures that gave […]
Julien Macdonald’s S/S 2012 collection was nothing short of amazing! The craftsmanship and detail in the gowns blew my mind. I really loved the embroidery on tool, I felt like the models were fairies rising from the underground. We have seen the tattoo style many times in the past but rarely does it work so […]
With everyone going modern, sleek, and sporty this Spring 2012, Burberry Prorsum is running in the totally opposite direction. Why? Because it can. Choosing to “celebrate things that take time to do”, Creative Director Christopher Bailey turned out one of the most memorable lineups of LFW – detailed with handcrafted natural wood toggles, crocheted raffia, […]
I have to ask myself, will it ever be too much? Will I ever see a Mary Katrantzou‘s collection and feel like she just went too far? I really really doubt it but she mixes so much together I don’t even know how it works. Every Katrantzou look pours out on the runway like a […]
For Fall/Winter 2011 Jonathan Saunders showed off his sportswear de luxe skills with a fearless collection. He explored the marriage of an extremely vibrant palette and a lot of micro prints/textile developments. The result was absolutely wearable and very fashion at the same time, this balance makes him one of the most anticipated London Fashion […]
I’m loving pretty much every single piece, throughout designer James Long’s SS 2011 Collection. Long brings out splash paint and knits with a beautiful color palette. I wish we could buy some cool designer pieces like this in the US, but unfortunately it’s only in UK and Japan!
David Koma’s past collection’s have often embodied a powerful, confident woman through sculptural and heavily embellished designs. So his Spring/Summer 2011 show at London Fashion Week opened with a change of scene as feminine ‘ballerina inspired’ sugary pink dresses floated down the runway.
It’s not the first time that we review the amazing Mary Katrantzou, and to tell you the truth, we kind of discovered her back in 2008, when she was graduating from Central St Martins. Since then, well, she became one of the most watched UK talents, selling in the best luxury stores worldwide. Katranzou is
“It’s about the powers of nature and the egoism within” Valery Kovalska said backstage at her London Fashion Week show. Her collection ‘Professional Suicides’ is an insight into her rock and roll lifestyle as a ‘TV and concert stylist’ in the Ukrainian music industry.
Marios Schwab is certainly under the spotlight at the moment. Becoming creative director for Halston means he had a debut to prepare for New York fashion week and a show for his own label at London fashion week just a week apart. For this collection Schwab seemed to go back to his Austrian roots. with […]
