I’m a little late on this post, but better late then never, right? To be quite frank, I was underwhelmed by London Fashion Week. It’s still pretty up-and-coming and I feel like LFW doesn’t have the sheer volume of incredible designers that NYFW has. Nevertheless, I’m going to share with you a few of the collections that I was drawn to:
Right off the bat, Erdem blew me away. I love the real showmanship exhibited in this collection through the rich textiles and colors. Emerald green is one of my favorite shades and I enjoy the luxe vibe that’s exuded from the feather coats and strappy sandals.
This collection was right up my alley. The metallic elements add such a great pop to a simple ribbed or sheer black dress. These clothes are totally wearable too; the jackets can be taken from day to night and the colors match with pretty much everything in your wardrobe. Two huge thumbs up for McQ.
I debated on whether or not to include Mulberry in this post because I’m not extremely keen on the clothes this season, but the shoes sold me. I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of classic clogs and platforms, and Mulberry offered the best selection. The presentation itself was absolutely beautiful and the models looked natural and sophisticated.
I’d never heard of Orla Kiely before seeing these images on style.com, but I appreciate her mod aesthetic. The floral prints and bright colors drew me in initially, and even though I’m not sure if I’d ever wear her pieces, I thought that her clothes were a nice switch-up from the all black/sporty ensembles that I typically blog about.
Quirky denim was all over the runway at See by Chloe. I’m lusting after the overall dress on the left with the subtle daisy pattern (which also comes in jacket and pants form). I like the soft textures and romantic, sideswept hair seen on the models. See by Chloe always gets it right in terms of beautiful and wearable hair and makeup.
