#LFW S/S17 Favourite Shows pt. 1

‘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! Simone Rocha Romance x Drama. Honestly, I don’t expect any less from Simone Rocha. If anything, having a baby (who by the way, she named Valentine) would have injected her with more emotion, passion and a way to fall in love again…dramatically. One of my favourite designers. Mary Katrantzou Finally! This was the Mary Katrantzou that I was waiting to come back! After being propelled to the dark side or diverting to other territory (i.e. less crazy prints), this is the Mary K. I like best. The embroidery x darker colour palette in the latter half of the collection was a great touch. Peter Pilotto Designers are really exploring different colour palettes this season, aren’t they? If you ever wondered what it was like to mix Baroque, metallics and colour together then here …

Simone Rocha Mothership makes you feel new, wonderful things that actually, I know nothing about but you can always show it, tell the story.

It was in a different state of mind, but all the more sensual for it as sheers were played with in fabrication and detail whilst intense blacks provided character, and the less romantic side. Romanticism is a signature of Simone Rocha’s, but not always for the Romantic. In some instances, it can be tomboy. Expect to see pale, dusty pinks and blacks but recreated each season. J.W. Anderson One word: sculpted. In my opinion, J.W. Anderson is the contemporary designer to watch, as he sculpts the Fashion Industry because quite …

In with one and out with the other. London Fashion Week proved to be another rainy affair, all of which I am too familiar with. It couldn’t be anymore ironic as it is pouring down outside just as I am typing this. But as per usual, the show must go on and perhaps the calling for heavy rain was only the beginning for something dark, magical and surrealist. Topshop Unique If you consider where Fashion sits today, then Topshop Unique is more relevant than ever in this Digital Age. Mash-up. Mix and match. Individualism. Choices. Gone were the days of wearing solely one brand or one distinct style. And who better to understand the current generation than Topshop who also sells to the masses?  There were references to the Seventies, Grunge, Punk…all of which are still relevant to the now. Most of all, there was an attitude in the styling and within the garments that was so resonant with being British. It was so clear that this was a collection finding life through the wearer themselves. Personal style. …
