#LFW S/S17 Favourite Shows pt. 2

‘London Bridge is falling down’ may sound familiar,

But it’s long known how to stand on two feet since,

Just as it knows how to build bridges again,

A city for the history-makers, the youth, the streets.

London Fashion Week, you’re next!

Anya Hindmarch

Perhaps an unusual choice, as Anya Hindmarch is primarily known for her bags/accessories. But it is exactly that that I’ve included her in here, as I found myself looking more at the outerwear pieces. Bizarre but beautiful.

Christopher Kane

I am notably not a fan of animal print. Designer or not designer – I have generally never grown to like the print however Christopher Kane has somewhat convinced me here in his new collection. Maybe it was the subtlety of the animal print although this collection as a whole was anything but. I suppose that’s the duty of the young designer…or the designer for the young – whichever way you want to look at it.

It was a mishmash of elements. ‘Make do and mend’ as the collection was called and it just worked. Christopher Kane never gives himself easy problems to work with. He strives on the complex, the process and the means to show it throughout the collection. Coincidentally, I am all for processes too!

Steven Tai 

Possibly the odd one out compared to what I have reviewed so far for #LFW, however all the more to talk about, especially for a brand that’s still relatively new (founded in 2013). A neutral colour palette – mostly in the form of whites and greys which is perhaps less associated with Spring/Summer. The focal point however were the fabrication and textile.

There was scrunching and pleating. Maybe describing Steven Tai as the odd one out was right in the first place, but this is no collection to leave behind. It’s oddly cool.
