The first 3 days of London Fashion Week have been fast paced and full of glorious new Autumn/Winter designs. We have seen Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Lily Allen, Daisy Lowe and even Kendall Jenner on the FROW. Trends so far have been a mixture, but my eyes have been drawn to the bright colours and especially the bright coloured fur. Pastels and metallics look set to continue on from SS14 and there has definitely been 50 shades of grey. We even have had the announcement of a Mulberry x Cara Delevingne collaboration which is very exciting news.
Here is a quick round-up from some of my favourite designers.
The Topshop Unique show today saw Kate Moss and Anna Wintour on the FROW. The show was a mixture of blues and greys, mixed with sheer and fur, metallic puffas and velvet skirts owned the runway alongside THAT patchwork shearling coat.
Daks show was really amazing, it seemed like a tribute to British tradition with the fur hats resembling the Palace guards and all the military style pieces. Trench coats were reworked as ballgowns and skirts and gold metallics made an appearance, alongside the famous house check.
I always love Holly Fulton’s shows, her designs are fun and flirty and definitely my style. The colour palette saw an eggshell blue and dusky pink with a lot of nudes and a red. Pieces included her trademark Deco motifs. My favourites included the blue dress with silver boot print and the exclamation mark sweater.
House of Holland
Henry Holland’s collection was a mass of bright colours! Coloured fur and sequins a plenty with fun lipstick motifs and ‘Rich Bitch’ Tees. Collared dresses, quilted jackets, ripped jeans and metallic trousers made the show one of my favourites so far.
The Markus Lupfer presentation was held in a cafe of sorts, with models wearing gorgeous check dresses, trademark embellished sweaters and flowers had a big influence. I adore the red check dresses with bows.
Julien MacDonald’s show was just as sparkly as he was on Strictly Come Dancing. The dresses were glamorous, glittering and amazing. The palette was mainly silver and gold with a hint of shimmering blacks, red and bold blue. Very sheer and barely there was the theme, simply stunning.
It’s the first time Hunter has been on the LFW schedule and this may have something to do with its new creative director Alasdhair Willis – Stella McCartney’s husband. They have expanded their offering into bags and outerwear and the catwalk was transformed into a wet puddle, perfect for the wellies. There was lots of green, waterproof ponchos, more bright colours and metallic puffa jackets. Also a brief stint from Dynamo at the end with his magic cards!
Tomorrow sees shows from Tom Ford, ASHISH, Peter Pilotto, Burberry and Christopher Kane to name a few, I can’t wait!
