So, here is my third and final London Fashion Week update (a week late, I know). I didn't manage to make it down to Somerset House on the Sunday but still got some pictures of my outfit in between running around London, getting caught in traffic and being rained on. I have to admit the S/S season is my favourite - February brings too much cold and rain!
I don't think there has been a collection this season that I haven't liked - seventies fashion has always been a favourite of mine, and so to have my personal taste suddenly a major high-fashion trend is amazing - everywhere I look is designs I love, covet, and can relate to. Here are a few favourites:
Stella Jean brought a vibrant mash-up of print and texture to the sophisticated and serene Milan scene, with her Indian Himalayas inspired collection boasting colour, pattern, embellishment and a whole load of style. Shapes were long and flowing with low waistlines and bishop sleeves, high and cowl necks and high-waist A-Line midis that will see us through perfectly from Autumn to Winter.
Burberry Prorsum is another collection that I am completely head-over-heels with. A distinct 70's flair runs through the etheral floral creations, with shaggy coats, suede and leopard print patchwork-ing and piecing everything together into a truly 'heartfelt and romantic' collection. The colour palette is deep, dark and wholesome, and brings to mind the dark, grainy photographs and faded fashion advertisements popular in decades past.
Dolce & Gabbana also cannot be ignored - once again creating a classical, elegant but also cutting-edge and modern collection celebrating motherhood. The clothes were at their finest - traditional, Italian and absolutely beautiful. Lace, silk, embroidered roses, sheer dresses and laser cut decor made the collection a wonderful celebration of female power, beauty and fertility.
