OUR FAVORITES FROM LONDON FASHION WEEK
The collection lots of coats, even dresses looked like coats. She used lovely prints that matched or not in a bountiful of colors. From pinks, blues, greens, yellows and also patchwork.
We also saw oversized flowy dresses with huge motifs a little bit grandma looking.
As expected the accessories were awesome with furry slippers with eyes, a cut oversized cat bag or bags that look like cushions in round or square shape.
EMILIO DE LA MORENA
The Spanish-born designer true to his background in sculpture presented a collection full of structural shapes. There were a lot of ruffles and volume. Bubble skirts, pencil skirts, flowy satins, and crop jackets. Models walked like moving sculptures. He used color blocks and some checkered tweed in pink, orange, blues, greens, and turquoise.
The feet followed the trend of having socks with chunky sandals.
For this collection, they rescued the old good checkered pattern of Burberry and placed it everywhere. From bags to coats, to baseball caps. Christopher Bailey played it safe. This collection will sell a lot because it is very commercial and iconic all at the same time. We saw a lot of raincoats, long sleeves, and tricot vests. The socks and sandals were present too.
We love the clumsy awkwardness this designer instills in her clothes. They are comfortable, with lots of volume and using layering, crocheting, and transparencies. This season´s Molly Goddard proposal included grey, pink, baby blue, black, red, and white as colors.
The designer presented a collection with prints that clashed or matched, with plenty of ruffles, transparencies in sexy negligées and funky round long sleeves. We also saw literally deconstructed pullovers and tops. The colors that predominated were black, yellow, orange, red and white.
One of our favorite designers, for this fashion week he presented a collection true to his love affair with prints (colorful florals and checkered black and whites). His silhouettes were very elegant, hugging the bodies with pencil skirts with slits and dresses and tops with 50´s style.
Long gloves, fluid dresses, crop tops, and ruffles were also part of the equation. The collection was a hybrid of rock & roll and romantic, with some rococo details like the cute rows of bows at the cleavage.
Jonathan Anderson, creative director of his brand and of Loewe, played with green, yellow, black, and soft colors in stripes and color blocks.
He proposed comfy clothes with layering, asymmetry with trousers with one leg short and the other long, bra looking tops, jumpsuits, extreme cleavage and deconstructed garments.
The Greek fashion designer brought us volume skirts, polka dots, and colorful prints. Gingham, plastic looking fabrics, neoprene, fringes and ruffles at the bottom of dresses and skirts made this collection fun and very structural. Not to forget that Mary Katrantzu studied first architecture in the US and later fell in love with textiles and kept on studying fashion at the prestigious Central Sant Martins.
