So far I have spotted bigger models, more ethnic models, older models, and Supermodels during London Fashion Week. Who knew there would be so much scandal during LFW?
Antonia Berardi’s new collection was full of ebellishments, lines,structure, shapes, neutrals, and color. It was a crazy good collection of pants, jackets, lace, bustiers, and bodcon mini dresses.
Matthew Williamson was a light and airy collection of muted colors. There were chains and tiny mirrors in different shapes. The shoes were beautiful. High heels are still in. I also think it is safe to say that little jackets and skirts or minidresses go well together.
Sass & Bide are back after a short hiatus with a beautiful collection of featuring the colors black, white, and gold. Some of the dresses looked billowy and Grecian as golden embellishments adorned the chest. The other element of the collection was completely structural and architectural. I always like their collections and am very happy to see them back.
PPQ was amazing. It was full of bright colors and ruffles. At first I wasn’t too sure about the collection, but once I looked at the slide show I was surprised at their use of patterns and color. The collection was full of things that I can totally see Topshop copying in a few months.
Ashish took us on a journey to Spikey Sequins land because they whole collection was full of tropical prints, maps, sequins, and spikes. This was another collection I wasn’t so sure about. I loved last season’s collection, but when I started looking through the slide show, my mind said, “EEEK!” Then the sequins shirts with the slogans on them caught my eye, as well as the sweatshirt with the built in fanny pack.
