Brace yourself, superbabes. These photos were taken with a smartphone.
Knowing of my major obsession with my Galaxy S4, Samsung very kindly invited me to play with the brand spankin’ new Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom over London Fashion Week.
Though it has a lot of the same features as my beloved S4 – Group Play, Sound & Shot, Drama Shot, etc – the Zoom has entered a league of its own. It has the most powerful zoom lens of any smartphone (we’re talking 10x optical zoom!), a 16 MP CMOS sensor, OIS and Xenon flash. It felt like carrying a spy-friendly mini SLR over Fashion Week and, as you can see from the photos I took at Holly Fulton (below), delivered insane results.
I may not end up with a SLR-broken back in my twenties, after all. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is, at the very least, a blogger’s best friend.
As much as I fell head over heels for the look of this cape and shift dress combo, its real hero factor is how comfortable both pieces were when worn from 9 to 5…am. With structure and warmth, this may have been my favourite outfit of London Fashion Week.
What I Wore:
‘Hazel’ cape and ‘Harmony’ dress from Jarlo London
Bracelet from Dower and Hall
Rose gold watch from Nixon
Handbag from Gianni Chiarini
Wedged boots from Even & Odd
It was a “give me comfort or give me death” kind of day come Day Four of London Fashion Week. Though I was one missed espresso away from heading to Somerset House in a onesie, a few super-bright pieces saved my style.
What I Wore:
Green faux fur coat, Antoni & Alison (AW12). Red beret, handmade (similar here). Neon orange jumper, Superdry. Red dress, vintage (similar here). Thigh-high boots, Boohoo. iPad case, Lodis (similar here).
There was actually a slice of time to get in front of my camera on Day Two. Woo! Prepare for a white out.
What I Wore:
Clutch, Kzeniya (similar here). Dress, Forever 21 (not online). Jacket, Boohoo. Shoes, Christian Louboutin (similar here).
We have finally made it to my final show of London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013! Let’s say farewell with a bang, shall we?
Jena.Theo rocked out with their collection – ‘Hell’s Angel’ – on the final day of fash madness to tell the story of a woman and her relationship to the environment. In particular, the duo wished to allude to Arthopoda (a large phylum of invertebrae animals that include insects, spiders, and crustacean). Thankfully, they left the multi-legged creatures and claws at home and replaced them with an earthy and alluring collection of wearable prints; favourites including light outlines of skulls, snakes, and hand-rendered tattoos.
By the time the glass beading rolled out, we had already been enamoured with buttery leathers, the ebb and flow of delicate organzas, spun silks, and a phenomenal ombre dress made of premium Japanese denim. I know very few women who wouldn’t pine for a piece of this collection.
