Roksanda Ilincic went full throttle sporty-chic for her S/S 2012 collection. Ofcourse that dichotomy almost always suggests great use of color/blocking on relatively simple silhouettes, and that is just what we saw in this collection. She did mention that for this collection one of her major devotions was modernizing old school craftsmanship and silhouettes.
There is no denying that Mary Katrantzou is one of the most dynamic new conceptions to the fashion world. It was clear to us when we featured her back in 2008 for her graduating collection that this talent was here to stay. Season after season she has continued her avant-garde exploration of textile development to […]
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
