When Janice Dickinson is on front row, you know you’re in for a treat. Giles Deacon had the best ‘model’ line-up of London Fashion Week, hands down; pregnant model-slash-TV presenter Abbey Clancy, curve-tastic Kelly Brook, (The A-Team…) Ana, Alessandra, Amber (Le Bon), Agyness and 71-year-old legend Veruschka, who closed. Giles just has an incredible eye. His collections are always a lesson in ‘How To Wear Colour‘, and with a sweet selection of fluorescent Sibling knits, he did not dissapoint. With a strong nineties club influence, he is pulling shapes like it’s nobody’s business. View Post
The Hungover Editors missed a Day Three treat, as the duo of Basso and Brooke switched from their sometimes headache-inducing designs to a collection full of classic shapes adorned with more complimentary prints. You know, the type of garments that will make a designer’s wallet bust.
The actual prints referenced city maps, Da Vinci’s handwriting, Tolstoy, architecture, botany and coral branches, all in soft pastels and slightly off-standard colours. Everything was texture terrific; gathering, folding, embossing – Basso and Brooke had it all. Structured, yet entirely languid – completely underrated. View Post
Matthew Williamson might hate the label, but boho luxe is his golden ticket, and he delivered this season with billowing maxi dresses. Besides the clothes themselves, the fact that he chose the Battersea Power Station as his backdrop put him very near and dear to my heart.
Inspired by the idea of being shipwrecked, Williamson’s girl would be lucky enough to wear an urban wardrobe teeming with easy-to-wear items, sprinkled with his trademark embellishment and girlish charm. The tailored pieces mark a new string to Williamson’s bow, but it’s still the dresses where he really gets into his stride. View Post
