Here come my favourite collections from the recent London Fashion week! I have to say though that I was maybe a tiny bit more impressed with New York’s designers this year, and many of the London’s “big names” somehow disappointed me. These amazing collections however stood out to me, so without further adieu, here are my top picks from LFW (again, not in order of any sort!):
This SS15 collection rocks just about everything surface design-wise – the pieces mix countless different surface textures such as embroidery, crystals, 3D flora and the perspex… which is paired with short hemlines and elegant coats & waistcoats. I love the colour scheme, too. It’s a collection that has a lot to look at, for sure!
This collection definitely isn’t typical me, but somehow I really like it; the effortless yet sophisticated, over-sized flowy blazers and coats, relaxed yet chic trousers and shorts… A big like! It’s a very grown-up, elegant collection but still somehow chilled – I especially love how all the models are wearing trainers.
The first thing that naturally got me looking at this collection were the irrestible, delicious colours. But there’s more: shiny surfaces, scuba/surfer-like cuts and designs, black contrasting bits and panels, chic sleeve-lenght… There’s a lot to like! I also really love how the model’s hair is styled, and that she’s wearing jellyshoes.
Richard Nicoll (& Sweaty Betty)
This boy-meets-girl collection features grey, silver and soft pastels, loose knitwear and shimmering fabrics with high tech finishes. The later half of the outfits below are a collaboration between Richard Nicoll and a trendy sportswear brand Sweaty Betty – it’s a chic take on sports-inspired casual wear which is working really well if you ask me!
Vibrant colours, energy and surface craziness – what’s not to like? The 60’s style mini dresses are extra short, the flowy trousers instead extra long, which is a nice contrast. Then there are bomber jackets, stripes here and there, contrasted zipped pockets, casual yet fashionable jumpers… basically a bit of everything.
