How amazing did London Fashion Week look? I am rather jealous I wasn’t able to go, but just looking at reviews is making my mouth water over some of the creations! Now I wouldn’t regard myself as a designer junky, most of my clothes come from charity shops or flea markets, but if I could afford it I would never say no to some of the pieces that were shown. I am so inspired from the colour, shapes and textures that I kind of want to re-invent my wardrobe. Perhaps after frugal February I could do a piece trying to re-create a look from Fashion week? That sounds fun. Anyway, I could have literally spent the whole day pinning and posting tons of images, but I have limited it as best as I can to my up most favourites from London Fashion Week.
So these two are both from designer Holly Fulton.For Fall 2014.
I could have quite easily put her whole collection up. Known for her Deco prints, and hand drawn designs,she didn’t disappoint. I’m just in awe to be honest. So the collection was inspired by 1929 silent movie ‘Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera’ and I couldn’t fault any of her pieces, I think I would wear them all. I am especially in love with the coat in the bottom image with the hand prints. Wishlist please. See the rest of the collection here.
Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2014. Her work revealed a collection of strong bold lines, mashed up with elegance and striking colours. A perfect match of evening and day outfits. Her style of clothing looks effortlessly beautiful. With this outfit, the subtle blue accents with gold belting edge up the look giving it a twist on a classic outfit. See the rest of her collection here and drool over the subtle geometric patterns and the contrasting bright fur accents.
Michael van der Ham’s Fall 2014 collection mixed a 60’s colour palette with a 90’s grunge layered look. Using a mix of fabrics, he created beautiful layered pieces. I love this outfit in particular, the bright yellow paired with the white and pale blue made it stand out to me in and instant. So simple yet edgy with an almost crochet like texture. Check out the rest of his collection here.
Here we have Erdem Fall 2014. The collection created by Erdem Moralioglu mixes femininity with bold colour and shapes. This dress in particular caught my eye with the wing backed sleeves and black accent collar over the lovely blue. His collection features largely a lot of strikingly dark colours, that paired with the edgy shape and cut outs of the pieces gives an almost oxymoron of harsh lines mixed with feminine accents. To see the rest of the collection, look here.
Now last but certainly not least we have Vivienne Westwood for Vivienne Westwood Red Label. What can I say this women is a GOD. Every time I see a new collection of hers, I am in love. With the show featuring an almost feminine suit like manner it escalated into a subtle punk edginess that we all love and know Vivienne Westwood to do. Especially with a triangle patterned pair of tights that were paired with some of the collection. With this outfit, although you may think slightly more demure compared to the rest of the collection which you can see here, I was drawn to the striking design on the front and paired with the pearl necklace, flowers and glasses I loved the layered edge secretarial look. It’s an outfit I would gladly wear day after day for any occasions.
So they are some of the clothes/Designers that I loved. Who knows maybe in the future I can try to re-create one of those looks.
Happy Thursday all.
